system loses focus on window/app after waking from sleep when BTT is running

v 3.744 (1885) on Macbook Pro M1 pro running 12.01


whenever I wake from sleep or locked screen, the system loses focus on window/app on was on before sleeping, and I have to click on the window to make it active again. I figured out that this was due to the BTT Settings > Advanced Settings > General> "restart BTT after wake from sleep" - once this was turned off, the behaviour stopped.

I was wondering what the impact is of turning this setting off. The focus issue is not a major problem but it is a nuisance, and if it can be avoided by turning this off, I would prefer it.

thanks for your comment and advice.
