I have to press the spacebar multiple times before playback will start

Since upgrading to 2020, pressing the spacebar to begin playback isn't working that well, at least 50% of the time. Sometimes it goes, sometimes I have to hit it twice before it will play, sometimes 3 times, sometimes it won't play at all until I click on something. I keep my canvas detached. When I hit the spacebar, the hand icon briefly engages. I can use it to move around the canvas. But I need it to just play. I'm constantly starting and stopping, as we all do when editing, and it's gotten to where I'm feeling irritated while working. When editing, when it's working properly I might hit the spacebar 15 or more times a minute as part of the process.

I replaced my headphones with a different option for audio, it didn't make any difference.

Thanks, yeah - I'm trying to get more specific details, they weren't able to help out. If I can disable the "hand" function when pressing the spacebar, it might be better but that's not a keyboard option.
