Chances are this is the default AppPool recycle event that occurs everyday 29 hours (1740 minutes).

In IIS Manager, go to the AppPool and view the Advanced Settings.  Under the section "Recycling" you should see the configuration item:

Regular Time Interval (minutes):  1740  ** this is the default setting.

You can set this option to "0" to prevent the timed recycle event from occurring.

Dan this sounds right since it occurs on  regular interval.  I reset and will close this and see what happens.  You are a life saver.

Dan do I need to restart IIS after the change?
