PulseAudio profile changes after a second login from the lockscreen.

When the screensaver turns on and I login back to the computer another PulseAudio profile is selected. In normal it uses Analog Surround 5.1 Output + Analog Stereo Input but after that a HDMI output is selected (I think because I have a DisplayPort cable connected to my monitor). How can I set a default or prevent this issue another way? I am using Fedora 25 with Cinnamon. Thanks for your help.

Welcome to ask.fedora. Just to be clear, are you logging in again, or are you simply unlocking your screen? I'm fairly sure it's the latter, but your description was a tad ambiguous.

Look in the startup applications, in the system control center, and turn off the pulseaudio autostart. Since pulseaudio runs when the system starts, it does not need to autostart with cinnamon.
