I'd say your cd player is not ESD aware. ESD by default takes /dev/audio
and holds onto it. You need to get ESD to let go of the device after a few
seconds. You can doo this by editing the source to esound and edit esd.c
You will find a line with
int esd_autostandby_secs = -1;
on it. Set this to 5 and then after 5 seconds of no use, ESD releases the
device and the cd player should be fine.
