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.

  PulseAudio automatically switches to HDMI sound output on login

Bug description:
  On my freshly installed eoan system I have two output devices:
  - HDMI/DisplayPort 2 - GK208 ...
  - Line Out - Family 17h ...

  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.
