GUI login indefinite load loop after being timed out

so i just started my first nas and come across this issue…when i get timed out of the gui and need to log back in, after clicking login it just doesnt load the dashboard and loops loading the login screen indefinitely…

rebooting my system and logging in again works normally though…but its very annoying to have to reboot everytime i get timedout…i know i can set the timeout longer, but was just curious why or how to fix this?

also to note, the reason i get timed out is because initializing my first windows VM get stuck on its initial load as well…i just get a “please wait” loop that goes nowhere
