I do not know how to fix the mixer itself, but you might want to use
custom suspend/resume script as the acpi architecture allows for.

In /etc/acpi/suspend.d add an executable script that stops the mixer
(killall mixer_applet2 should do the trick), and add a pending script in
/etc/acpi/resume.d to restart it.

Hope this helps,
