So far not liking this setup

I have spent the last 5 hours trying to determine why my carve is stopping without completing, it just stops at random positions within the carve and the "carve complete window pops up.
when this happens the stepper motors stop but the spindle continues to turn. I have gone through all of the troubleshooting steps to no avail. My frustration level is through the roof with this contraption today. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the machine a couple times necessitated by troubleshooting telling me to clear my cache. Guess where your machine settings are stored. Has anyone else delt with this insanity before?
Using the Yorahome Silverback.

Are you having an issue with any other sender like UGS- sender.
Also check your PC power saving features. Possibly disable power save, set never sleep.

Hitting the lower limit switch possibly?
I added a 2nd wasteboard atop the stock one on my Silverback as i wanted to surface the whole thing and the stock one didnt allow for this full surfacing… and this also raised the workpiece enough to not trip the lower sensor.

But also pc settings.

I’m very new to this and don’t have any other senders, and all of the troubleshooting suggestions were tried. I even went as far as cutting a piece of the packing foam from the shipping box of my machine and putting it under my laptop to reduce vibration. I decided to try a different lap top and after installing the drivers that did the trick. I guess the new laptop i bought in preparation for the arrival of my machine has issus. Thanks to you and Seth for your replies. After about 2 week of messing with this thing i might apply to be Seths helper, god knows I’m having no problems finding issues.

Well it stopped again and this time seems to be a different issue as the carve complete message never came up, the machine just stopped. There is a alarm 1 and alarm 3 at the bottom of the machine inspector page.

Alarm 1 indicates a limit switch was activated. Possibly the lower Z limit?

Alarm 3 indicates the same, that a travel limit was exceeded within software this time.

Thanks again Seth, I figured it out early this morning. it dawned on me that due to the 1/8" V bit being much shorter than the bowl bit that I may have activated the lower limit. I came home from work and adjusted the bit downward and the spindle to its lowest position.
