    Headphone Jack in MacBook shoots down amplifier

    Maybe somebody has heard of this problem and has a possible solution:
    I have my MacBook connected to an amplifier. Apparently the MacBook turns off the headphone jack when it's not in use (or something). As soon as I use it again, there's some kind of surge (or something again) which makes the amplifier automatically turn off to protect itself. Since I need the amplifier to be reliable I have to solve this problem.

    The obvious solution would be an external sound card. But is there maybe a software solution to this problem? Some way to deactivate the Macbook turning off the headphone jack?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Are you connected using 3.5mm analogue jack or optical?
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
