Hi.

The app vendor should know that issue, did you look for an FAQ at the homepage or mail support?

Or could it be simply power settings that send the device to sleep?

At the start screen, type "power" and you should see power options after a short search. Look into those and see what is set to 3 hours/180 mins.

The start screen is what you see when you click the start button or when you hit the winkey on your keyboard.

Is your system language english? Then it will be found, normally. Anyway, do the following:
Press winkey and r together, then enter
powercfg.cpl
It will open the power plan which you can change/check for the three-hour-setting
