I use HP ProBook 4510s and after the sleep the sound didn't work. 

For me uninstalling and deleting the old Audio Drivers did the trick.

Now i'm only using High Definition Audio Drivers, the problem by me was the SoundMAX from Microsoft digitally signed drivers.

I'm facing the same issue and what I do to solve the problem is disabling and re-enabling the Realtek sound driver.
