By default, Pods automatically shut off after 1 hour of no network activity.

To change the Pod’s auto shutoff interval, select the pod of interest, and click Manage Pod to navigate to the Pod’s Settings page.

When auto shutdown is enabled, the minimum delay before the Pod can be shut down is 15 minutes.

If Pod’s auto shutdown is disabled, the Pod will always be running. This behaviour is often undesirable, except in the case where you want an always-on Pod for running an application server or long-running scripts.
