Going to sleep and waking up leads to "Unlicensed" error in office 365

I have been encountering an issue with Office 365 (word specifically) when I put the PC to sleep and wake it up I get the product is "unlicensed error" which also means I loose any work I have done as I can't save. Closing out and reopening the document fixes the unlicensed issue, so its not a permanent problem. Seems like office is calling back into to MS to check if its valid, but fails to activate? (this is also occurs 1-2 min after wake up).
This is on office version 1808 (10730.20102)

Anyone have suggesting on solving this issue. It seems for now only recourse is to save, close out before sleep, and then re open the document when waking up.

So I do not believe anymore this is related to wake up and sleep. The issue appears to occur when OSPPSVC.exe crashes (or shortly there after? Or some other issue, but effectively once something related to MS licence protection crashes word will work for a short period of time and then show the unlicensed error. Restarting the machine seems to fix the issue, but would love to know how one could completely reset cross-over with out reboot or logging out? ( Performing reboot simulation in cross-over seems to do nothing as well?)

I further notice this issue to appear primarily when I put my PC under heavy load (so if I only use low load applications ( chrome, word, etc) it does not happen, but the moment I start to run something heavy (PyTorch for example) a crash occurs?
