One additional aspect to note is that some desktop monitors reconnect to the system when returning from power-save mode. In my case the sound selection is changed to HDMI/DisplayPort whenever this happens. Changing the sound setting back 10+ times a day is extremely annoying.

When I login into the system pulseaudio always select the "wrong" one (HDMI) and I need to go to gnome-settings/Sound/Output Device and switch to "line out". This applies to every login/logout not just reboots. I would be good if it would remember this choice so that I have to do it only once. Or maybe (if that is technically possible) just output on both output devices by default - this would be even more user friendly for newbies who will have a hard time finding the right place to change this (or maybe have UI in the volume slider to select outputs if there are more than one? But anyway, my immediate concern is that it should just remember my choice :) Please let me know if I can provide more information. Happy to dig into code if needed but I will need some pointers.
