I have an extra box at my house, which I'm using for two purposes. One is as a game server - running a command prompt with Terraria and Minecraft servers. I'm running this from my user account. Then another household member uses it for general internet stuff, reading email and whatnot, with her own account. We do not log my account out, but just use user switching to log her in, while leaving my account still logged on.
This seems to work fine for a week, at which point Windows 8 seems to kill the Terraria and Minecraft servers. It still shows me as being logged in, but when I enter my account, the processes I had been running are closed.
Anyone know why this is happening, or how to stop it?
