## Startup / Shutdown takes a while
For some reason the GPD Win 3 takes almost a minute to shut down or start up. Not sure if it's because Ubuntu hangs at some step or similar. Haven't cared too much since suspending and waking from sleep is still relatively fast.
## Speaker often "pops" when starting audio playback
This is a hardware "issue". The speakers in the Win 3 simply make a pop when they receive a new signal and get activated.
I only encountered this issue on Arch Linux for some reason, not on Ubuntu.
To workaround this, edit `/etc/pulse/default.pa` and comment out the following line:
```
load-module module-suspend-on-idle
```
When you comment out that line, Pulseaudio should no longer put the sound card into standby when no audio has been played for a while, and instead keeps it active. This might cause a slight increase in power consumption but should get rid of the pops when starting/stopping playback.
