Netgear Genie reboots my PC

I installed Netgear Genie version 2.3.1.57 on my Windows 8.1 Pro computer so that I can setup parental controls. Since installing Netgear Genie, my computer reboots after it is idle for some period of time.

1. Is this a known problem?
2. How can I eliminate this problem (other than uninstalling Netgear Genie)?
3. Is this product still actively developed/maintained? I've noticed other problems with the application.

My computer was working fine for months. The reboot problem started after installing Netgear Genie, so I uninstalled it after a couple of days. My computer was working fine again, so I reinstalled Netgear Genie and the problem returned. No other software was installed during this period, so I concluded Netgear Genie is the cause.
