Postgres is going to sleep or something...

I’ve never seen Postgres shut down the server by itself.   All of our hundreds of installs run constantly, 24 hrs per day, on every server we have ever installed it on, mac, windows, linux, freenas.   Postgres only stops when you make it stop, never by itself unless it abends

which brings us back to the postgres logs.   /Library/Postgres/14/data/logs

go and look at those.    

if there are multiple log files per day, it likely means postgres restarted (for some reason)

then edit the log file and look at the end of it….   and see what it says.
