Roon unexpectedly shuts down, iMac reverts to startup screen when Roon shuts down

Roon on my iMac shuts down unexpexdely after about 30-40 minutes.

Reverts to startup screen where I select the user that is logging in.

I do not have that issue when I travel with my Macbook. No shutdowns.

Also, Roon takes a very long time to start up.

I use Macbook,iPad mini 6 and iphone 12 Pro as remotes.

When I go to the Dominican Republic, I log into Roon with Macbook, and that becomes the Core. Does not have the revert problem and Roon runs much quicker during startup.
