"500 - Internal Server error."

Last Modified: 2015-03-24
I am running an IIS website on a 2012 R2 server that serves all static pages.  The first request to the server returns a "500 - Internal Server error.  There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed."  Refreshing the browser and all future requests return pages as expected.  This also happens if it has been a while since the last page request.  (20 to 30 minutes)  I suspect a timer of some kind but cannot find it anywhere.  Is  this a known issue?  (Hopefully with a known solution.)
