Thanks for your reply.
You are right, the machine driver should disable the PLL.

Best Regards,

That would be a bug in the machine driver, the machine driver should be disabling the PLL when it suspends since the startup and shutdown of the PLL need to be coordinated with the input clocks. Besides, if we were doing this in the CODEC driver then as I said last time the PLL needs to be restored on resume since the machine driver should be able to expect that settings it has made are preserved (eg, if it sets things up on init).
