I too occasionally lose my sound on Fedora 10.  The solution that I've found is
as follows.

First, use this command to find out if something is blocking the sound:

fuser -v /dev/snd/* /dev/dsp*

If you see a problem you can use a kill command to get rid of the task that's
causing the problem.

To restart pulseaudio use this command:

pulseaudio -k ; pulseaudio -D --log-target=syslog

This gets the sound back for me every time that I've lost it, so far anyway.
