My sample rate is suspended

hello, I want to register my voice and I’ ve downloaded audacity but whene I start it it comes out an error that say that my simplarete is invalid. I cheke it with this command pactl list sources short and it comes out this ‘‘44100 Hz SUSPENDED’’. What does ‘suspended’ means and how can I reactivate it???

As far as I can see, it is suspended while not used.
For instance I have:

$ pactl list sources short
0	alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1f.3.analog-stereo.monitor	module-alsa-card.c	s16le 2ch 44100Hz	IDLE
1	alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1f.3.analog-stereo	module-alsa-card.c	s16le 2ch 44100Hz	SUSPENDED

alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1f.3.analog-stereo is SUSPENDED, but if I start, for instance Audacity and I start Recording, it becomes RUNNING.
