Filemaker freezing/losing data when desktop sleeps

I am a Filemaker user at a small non-profit, and the version of FM that we are currently using is v.12

 

We have the software on several desktops, but I seem to be the only one with this particular problem.  If I have FM open when my desktop goes to sleep, data that was entered before the desktop slept is lost.  If I was working in an established file, then I lose the changes.  If I created a new file, however, the entire file disappears and I cannot retrieve the data or reuse the number. 

 

I am doing my best to shut the program down before walking away from my desktop, but I don't always anticipate being gone long enough for the desktop to sleep.

 

Any suggestions are welcome -
