My bot is ZzzzZzzzZ

By the way, the 1 bot I put on this site fell asleep yesterday, what could be the reason?

Hi,

It sounds like you may be describing the behavior of free Web Service instance types.

Free Web Service instance types will spin down after 15 minutes of inactivity and spin back up with a subsequent request - which can take a little time. This is noted in the docs: https://docs.render.com/free#spinning-down-on-idle

Upgrading the service to use any paid instance will prevent the spin-down behavior.

However, “bots” are usually better suited to Background Workers, although these don’t offer free instance types.
