Even though background computation is enabled and the machine is set to shut down after 30 min of inactivity, it never shuts down. Is there something here I am missing? When I forget to shut down the machine manually, it eats up my time on a larger machine or GPU. It is annoying.
Could you provide your notebook ID (URL) here or via DM - I’ll check in the logs why it hasn’t been terminated.
Thanks, Igro. Here is the URL for the notebook:
Here is another notebook that does not shut down.
Hmm, I don’t see any errors in the log, also I didn’t manage to reproduce the issue - in my case, background computation has been successfully terminated after 30 minutes of idle.
Am I reading this correctly, that you had no open browser tabs with your notebooks? Computation won’t be stopped if there is a user in the notebook.
Thank you, Igro, this solves my problem. I was assuming that being idle would trigger a shut down. I was leaving tabs open. I will not do that any longer.
Thanks so much.
Oh, I see. Thank you for letting me know.
I’ll forward your feedback to the team, it looks like we need to improve the UX to prevent such confusion in the future.
I was also confused — didn’t realize keeping tabs open causes machine to keep running. Glad I found this post.
