    Your PC might be set to sleep once it is idle for 5mins. For you to adjust this setting, we suggest looking into the

    • Open Control Panel and click on Power Options.
    • On your Preferred plans, click Change plan settings.
    • Click Change advanced power settings.
    • Expand Sleep and System unattended sleep timeout.
    • Set how many minutes you want your system to be left idle before it goes to sleep.

    Let us know how it turns out.

    Regards.
