I didn't even find a setting in KDE, so I can't tell whether there is one that doesn't work reliably. However when I bought my new computer a few months back, I had the same issue. This is how I solved it: I created a file 'audio_disable_powersave.conf' with the following single line content:

options snd_hda_intel power_save=0

I think I got it from here: https://superuser.com/a/1493101[1]

Hope that works for you, too.
