Form 3 stopped in middle of print and said it was done


My Form 3 started up normally for a ~13 hour print. I checked the Dashboard before I went to bed and it said the print was finished after about 3 1/2 hours. I went downstairs to check and the print head was down in the resin and the printer was showing IDLE. There were no error messages. It just stopped and said it was done. I had to restart the print and then cancel to get the head to come back up. What I could see of the partial print seemed normal. Any thoughts on why the printer would stop in the middle of a print? And why if it thought it was finished did it leave the head down in the resin?
