Just recode your mp3's to ogg files and use `ogg123 -d arts' or Noatun, use 
kmplayer for movies and then think hard what you need esd/oss for again -:).

I can say that the autosuspend feature works for me(tm) on -CURRENT and KDE 
3.2-CVS, which will be released real soon now. Just make sure you disable a 
lot of unneeded sounds in the desktop, like 'shwoosh' on window resize, 
'whammm' on window closure and so on, as these add to the 5 seconds.
