See that's weird. I am running Intel audio on the laptop as well. Pulse will 
crap out almost daily (several times) complaining that "PulseAudio can't do 
something with the Intel blah-blah... falling back to PulseAudio"

Come to think of it, I wonder if some other app ISN'T using pulse (can't 
imagine what) and causing the problem... but really it is as if PulseAudio is 
conflicting with itself trying to play things.
