I am using elementary OS freya 0.3.2.

As the title says, Is it possible to continue playing music even system gets locked for inactivity? In Ubuntu, system continue to play music after it was locked. But in elementary its not working (atleast for me).

Is there any way to make the system continue to play music even it is suspended for inactivity.

What worked for me was adding my user into the 'audio' group. This isn't necessarily a good idea for the reasons listed here, but for a single user system shouldn't be problematic.

sudo usermod -a -G audio myusername
