Clock pauses while I am gaming

Not sure how to word my question or what info is needed to troubleshoot as I am a long time Windows user but new to Linux. When I start a game, usually from Steam, my clock pauses at whatever time the game starts. In today’s case 14:39. It is now 18:33.

I am using the default Digital Clock V3 on plasma(KDE).

Thanks in advance.

My problem is not with the games while gaming. It is with the clock pausing when I start gaming. It sorts itself out when I close the game and shows the current time but while gaming shows the time that I start gaming.

Seems to have been the following setting:
“Allow applications to block compositing” in System settings > Display and monitor > compositor.
Disabling this has allowed the clock to update while gaming.
