Steps to reproduce:
1) Start entering notes into music sheet.
2) Continue doing 1_
3) Try playing the score by pressing the play button
4) The play button turns blue, but the score is not playing. Once the problem starts it occurs for all the open score sheets. And it does help to reopen the sheet. The program needs to be closed and then re-opened.

There is no pattern to when the problem occurs, so it does not look like this is a problem with a specific score.

Are you perhaps changing audio devices? MuseScore sometimes needs to be told to rescan, try toggling the MIDI button off then on (on the main toolbar). Otherwise, if you cannot come up with more precise steps to reproduce the problem - I've never seen anything like what you describe and cannot reproduce - please ask for help on the forum and include more info about your OS and your audio setup (devices, drivers etc). Perhaps someone else familiar with that particular OS and audio setup might have some insight into possible conflicts.
