System is shutting down (going into sleep mode) to save itself wear and tear. Hard drive I am sure is shutting off too which explains why a few seconds to get going again. Probably a BIOS setting. Probably set at one hour. TR stops timing when computer is asleep. PC clock still running on its own but TR can't get the info when it is not running.

If I have TR Log operating and then do not use it for more than 15 or 20 minutes the screen goes blank (black) and the PC clock does strange things. As an example, with TR Log open but unused two hours later the screen is blank. Press any key and the screen slowly recovers; this takes about ten seconds or so. But the clock is showing that only one hour has elapsed and not two.
