If you make  a Disk Image when all is working OK, you can then just restore the image instead of reinstalling everything if things go wonky. I use this free utility: https://www.aomeitech.com/ab/standard.html There are other free and paid backup software programs.

something on your computer is shutting it down. ie, ps is not shutting itself down.

 

whether you can determine what's causing that or not, save your work frequently and, if necessary, close ps before allowing your computer to sleep.

Thanks for the reply. Microsoft recommended a restore. So I will see if
that works.  I hope it does because it is a pain to have to reinstall
the software every day. Passwords, user names and verification codes.
