Summary0028838: UWP: After OnSuspending, apps can sometimes disconnect from GM: S 1.4 IDE, thinks the app has been closed
DescriptionIf you have a UWP game and minimise it repeatedly for a period of time, the 1.x IDE will eventually lose connection to it after OnSuspending has been called.

The Compile log shows 'Lost connection with app', followed by 'Compile Finished'.

The game can still be played, however, it's just unable to send data back to the IDE, so nothing will display in Output anymore.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a new project
2. Run the game for Windows UWP target
3. Repeatedly minimise the game, waiting a few seconds each time before restoring the window.
4. Observe that after a few minimises the IDE loses connection.
Repro: 100%

Don't "think" there will be much we can do about this. Once an app is suspended, then the IDE won't be able to talk to it, so it'll time out and he connection will be closed. Will probably just depend how long it is suspended for....
