    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?
