Any MPD experts here? Stuck with a problem.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it. I’ve installed mpd (with ncmpcpp as the client). On system start up mpd appears to run fine. However a few minutes after wards I get a “connection refused” message and mpd shuts down. When I check the services menu in Yast, mpd is enabled but not active. After mpd shuts down I have to launch it manually then launch ncmpcpp in able to listen to music. Again, not sure why mpd shuts down after successfully launching during system startup. Any help would be appreciated.
