wake-on-request (also known as scale-to-zero) | sleeping apps after a period of inactivity

Hi,

On the Free tier of Heroku the system automatically sleeps apps after 30 mins of no web traffic, on another PaaS the apps are put to sleep after 15 mins of inactivity. This feature helps reduce the usage time immensely, especially in the case of APIs Apps.

So my question is: do apps on Fly.io sleeps after a certain period of no web traffic?
If not, Is there a way to make them sleep after a certain period of no web traffic?

Yes, you can do that with Machines: Machines · Fly Docs
