Headphones stop working after being left alone for a while.

On my windows 8 computer, I can use headphones and they work usually when I log on, though after maybe an hour of being left alone with the headphones still plugged in, the sound shuts off and no sound can be heard through them. I've tried almost everything I can think of. Then, whenever I restart my computer, they work again. I don't exactly want to have to turn my computer off every time I want to use my headphones. I have currently tried:

- Setting headphones as default playback device
- Uninstalled and updated audio drivers
- Disabled and reenabled
- Disabled audio enhancements
- Cleaned out the headphone port.

Of course, the only thing I haven't done is actually check the hardware to see if it's damaged or something. I want to see if the problem can be solved without having to do something drastic. If I have to tear apart my computer, I'd rather just not listen through headphones at all.
