Why does my server crash every time I exit putty?

Posted January 21, 2015 3.3k views

Every single time I exit putty, my server crashes. It’s gotten to the point that I have to keep my laptop on 24/7 to keep my servers up. If my laptop runs out of battery and putty is exited, my servers all crash!
Why does it do this, and how can I stop this?!
