REST end point in free apps.

Hi All, I’ve come across a problem within a free app. I have a power bi dashboard that grabs data from a rest end point that’s exposed in a free app. However when the app falls asleep because no one has been on it in a while the rest call fails to get the data. The call is on a refresh (every 4 hours) Do rest calls wake the app up but it takes a while so the call is timing out?

To my knowledge REST calls to the free node will always fail if the node is in the sleep status. And if I am not mistaken also the same with deeplinks. The problem is that the request handlers are also not active. So every functionality that is using request handlers do not work. Maybe somebody from Mendix can chime in here to confirm.
