Auto-shutdown did not work on Win 10 VM

I have a Win 10 VM with Auto-shutdown set up with a 30 minute notification to email. Yesterday, I started the VM but never actually logged into the VM. I did receive the notification email, but this morning the VM was still running. Auto-Shutdown never occurred. I made no action to change this. For example, I did not click on Postpone within the email. My first concern is that someone else has access to this VM. I did go into event viewer in the Win 10 VM and do not see any suspicious items for event ID 4624.

Any assistance would be great!

Would suggest to post a question on forum here by using Azure VM related tags in it -
