Can I leave the Arduino IDE and the model still run?

I have a model created and uploaded to an esp32 ai-thinker board. When i have the board plugged in it runs without problem. As soon as i get off the arduino ide it seems to reset. This is a problem as im using another application to pull this information into another application and when i try to do that it says my access is denied. I know i can do this as ive had arduinos send stuff to the serial pot and then the same code pull from my computer. I however dont understand why the edge impulse code doesnt seem to run after i close the arduino ide.

Hi @Kswanso5

Please share some screenshots of your configuration perhaps you missed something on initial configuration:
