I've noticed that even after I have closed all of my RStudio tabs, my project hours still seem to increase from the point where they were when I exited.
In one of the discussions here on the community, I found:
"One more note on usage charges - we currently suspend the R session after 15 minutes of inactivity - and then suspend the container 15 minutes after that. We currently charge the entire 30 minutes as usage against your account. However, we are in the process of updating the code so that you will not be charged for the 15 minutes while the R session is suspended."
Is there a way to manually stop the clock on RStudio Cloud counting project hours? My students are just learning the basics of RStudio and I anticipate that they should be able to complete all of their work in the 15 project hours per month on a free account. However, if they are being docked an additional 30 minutes of time each time they open a project in RStudio Cloud (or even 15 when this code gets updated), that extra time could easily push them up to the limit. My students will not be running complicated code that will need to continue to compute after they close out of the RStudio tab. Are there alternatives or workarounds you could recommend so my students will be able to make the most of their project hours? Is there a button to click to tell RStudio Cloud I'm done working on this project for now or does logging out of the site accomplish this?
