I have a problem with sound output. My speakers are connected through the S/PDIF connector. Headphones are also connected to the computer through a 3.5 mm jack. After a random time (approximately 5-10 minutes), the sound switches from S/PDIF to the 3.5 mm jack connector. With 3.5 mm jack, the connector on S/PDIF does not happen. Switching happens by itself.

How can I make it so that it does not switch itself?
