Foot pod troubles

I just got my foot pod last week and it seems to have trouble registering in the game when I am ready to run. This morning I started running, it said that the footpod was paired and connected yet my avatar wouldn’t start running in the game. I took the foot pod off, shook it and put it back on my laces and it worked fine after that? Is this a know issue? Feels like the foot pod went in some “sleep” mode?
