Hey there! Warm greetings.
You have mentioned that you cannot connect to your instance via PuTTY. Which is giving you an error “Network error: Software caused connection abort”.
With regards to the error experienced, this error is usually experienced when using PuTTY to connect to the instance, and occurs when the session is left idle for some time, which causes PuTTY to break the connection. This can be resolved by setting a keepalive by navigating to "Connection" -> "Seconds between keepalives", and setting a value greater than 0. For more information on the error I have added a reference document .
Further more the CPU utilisation could have showed nothing and after a few minutes showed that it was being utilised because the instance was in a stop state. When it comes to CloudWatch metrics it takes about 5 minutes before it is populated, unless you have detailed monitoring configured which takes about 1 minute to populate the CloudWatch metrics .
