Oculus Rift S Orange light turns on during use.

Everytime I use the headset about 30 to 45 minutes of playing the orange light comes on and the headset screen freezes, also it says my Displayport can't be found. I have to close the game I am playing and click the beta Restart Oculus in settings in the Oculus app. also if the computer is on for a while and the headset isn't being used and in sleep mode (Orange light in on) putting on the headset doesn't wake it up, i found the best way to wake the headset is by restarting my computer.

I have been dealing with this since summer is there a fix?

    I installed the new "Windows 10 build 2004" and all my issues seem to have gone away. I forgot to mention in my last post that I tried to turn sleep mode off for the USB driver of the headset, but it never worked. now after I installed the new Windows build the headset orange light doesn't turn on  anymore if I'm playing a game or the headset isn't being used.

    Glad to hear you sorted it.  It must be hard for Oculus when the software you build upon is crap.

    I was having that problem for almost a year ever since I bought the headset, It made me not want to use it to much because it stopped working during use after a while every time I used the headset. but its been four days now and no issues at all.
