Why was my staging site asleep?

At Flywheel, we strive to provide all of our customers with a robust set of development features like staging sites.  Features like staging sites do use valuable resources. When we detect that a staging site has not been accessed for several days, we automatically dial down those resources.

Your staging site is still available for use!  When traffic is detected again, we automatically dial the resources back up which, as you experienced, can take a few moments. Have no fear, this only happens to staging sites and never your production site.
