Plex for Windows synchronization only synchronizes if app is active

the Plex for Windows App only synchronizes content if the app is in the foreground.
If I want to synchronize content it should happen even if the app is in the background.

Best regards

    Yep. I know Android it doesn't have to be in the foreground. Even worse, I have found that on the a phone, the app won't sync even if it is in the foreground, if the screen shuts off. Even with everything working as such, it will require me to close the app and attempt to sync at least five times before I get it to work. It generally just hangs and hangs.
