How do I get MS Outlook 2013 to load Gmail unread messages.

MS Office 2013 Outlook will not refresh when connected to Gmail.

When I wake up my PC from the sleep mode and I open MS Outlook  which is connected to my Gmail Account, the unread list of emails does not update.

I have tried pressing F9 to refresh the Outlook screen and it still does refresh the list of unread emails that I know are in Gmail.
I have tried sending my self a new email to force it to update but that does not work either.

Is there a setting somewhere in MS Outlook to refresh whenever new email items are in Gmail or refresh the data every 5 minutes?

My email settings type is: IMAP/SMTP

Thanks in advance for your help.
