Strange audio behaviour on iBook running 10.2.6 - Mac Applications & Software

I have been having a problem with audio delays on my iBook running 10.2.6. As an example, suppose that I do something that causes the system to play a sound. I will hear a soft click. The sound will then play 1-3 seconds later, or not at all.

    Default Strange audio behaviour on iBook running 10.2.6

    I have been having a problem with audio delays on my iBook running
    10.2.6. As an example, suppose that I do something that causes the
    system to play a sound. I will hear a soft click. The sound will then
    play 1-3 seconds later, or not at all. This happens with several
    sounds in several situations in several apps---some examples are the
    sound played by Mail.app when I receive new e-mail, or the beep when
    there is more than one option for tab-completion in Terminal, or the
    beep when I search for a string in a Safari window that isn't there.

    Can anyone suggest why this might be happening, or what I can try to do
    to fix it?

    Thanks,

    No suggestions, but I occasionally get similar behaviour on my iBook 700
    with 10.2.6.

    Thanks---that's exactly it. See

    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106766

    One fix (which I haven't tried) is KeepSoundAwake:

    Another is SoundOn!:
