Pitop forces power-off

Hi All,

I have a problem, I wish to run a USB Linux distro (debian) from pitop. I bought a pitop4 ~6months ago and all is working fine in that configuration.

I bought another pitop lately and basically, anything other than Pi-Top OS running from SD card causes pitop to auto power off after ~60sek.

So i end up with a booted system but can’t do anything as it’s simply powered off within that short time.

Is this some intended feature of PiTop Hub? can this be modified somehow?
