I’m trying to use Salad on my shadow PC, and it works, but it shuts off after not being used for a while. I was wondering if there was a way I could have it never shut off.

Sorry, the Shadow service shuts off causing Salad to shut off as well.

Hey @Lays 
Your Shadow does automatically shut down if not used. The shutdown timer is dynamic and ranges from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on datacenter load.

@Lays There are X amount of slots available in a datacenter, and Y amount of customers assigned to that datacenter, whilst Y is always a greater number than X as Shadow won’t provide every customer with one dedicated private server. All customers are never online at the same time, which allows shadow to provide less servers than customers and still have space for everyone. If now customers start to occupy shadow 24/7, and enough people do that, queues will build up to access Shadow. That happens when more customers are trying to use Shadow than slots available. If you keep your Shadow alive forcefully you are influencing these variables in a negative way, which is why it is not allowed.
