Restore sound in Ubuntu 11.10

Sometimes, in my Ubuntu 11.10, sound is not working after the system started.
It happens from time to time, and can be solved rebooting or restarting the session. However it is really annoying making a reboot once you have all your toolbox of programs running.
The solution is as simple as opening a Terminal (ctrl + alt + T)
and restating the pulse audio daemon:
pulseaudio -k  (no need to be root)
pulseaudio --start
pulseaudio --check

now you can use you media player with sound!
