I think Always on feature in your app service is not turned on. Websites unload if they sit idle for too long, which helps the system conserve resources.
Always On (available for Standard tier websites) keeps the app loaded even when there's no traffic. If you are not using Standard tier, it's turned off by default. So please check it.
