computer STILL goes to sleep while running

Post by kristenanne77 » Tue Sep 08, 2020 1:48 am

There were a few jobs I checked in on and the spindle was spinning, but not moving. It had stopped.
The computer screen was dark.
The machine shut down.
I set the sleep setting to never shut down and the display to never shut down and it still does it.
Ruined a few jobs which went "almost" to completion.
Ay ideas what is causing this?
The software I use to run Shapeoko 2 is Universal Gcode sender. and Windose 10. I believe "dose" is the proper term here/
I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but years ago I have run jobs which were just as long without a problem.

Any ideas on what might be causing this would be appreciated.

Thanks

In running into the same issue I have narrowed it down to static electric shock coming off my shop vac...when I'm not running the shop vac, no problems, when I an...50/50 chance its gonna stop and disconnect my cutter

I may be having the same problem with the static. Thanks for the input.
