Sound disappears if I stop using the program for a while

If I'm using Hydrogen (on a Mac Mini) and stop using the program to do other things but then go back to it all the sounds have disappeared.  If I hit play the screen looks like it should when a pattern is playing but there is no sound.  If I shut the program down and re-open sound returns.

 

Any reason why that's happening and can I get sound back without shutting the program down?

are you using jack as audio server ?

sounds like a conflict with audio drivers/servers

Sorry I'm not great with computers and I'm not sure what using jack as an audio server means.  I'm using the mac for various other music related purposes (Spotify, Transcribe!, iTunes, Audacity) and not having any problems with sound cutting out on these.

it has happened to me. i fixed it by loading the drumkit again.... like right click on whatever drumkit(on the library) you already have on and then click load , it will start sounding again when you hit play ..cheers!
