There's a number of CardBus sound cards that I've helped people debug
over the years.  Also, I know many people will load and unload the
sound driver as a way to keep power usage down since doing so puts the
device into D3 state.  I've fielded many bugs over the years where
people have issues with sound because they suddenly removed it while
things were playing.
