I'm a front -end developper from belgium and i use duet display to run terminal so i can use my native screen for coding and my external screen for testing. But here's the issue. When photoshop is open and i minimize. My computer kind of logs out and shut down all applications (so a very quick restart i guess). Without duet, i don't have this issue. I will also adress this bug to Duet display. My hardware setup is the following. 

MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)
Processor: 2,2 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB


IPAD MINI (first generation):
OS: IOS 9.3.1

And i use adobe creative cloud. With everything up to date. I hope you can reproduce this issue and fix it (or at least tell who's to blame for :p ).

If the machine shuts down, freezes, or restarts -- then you are looking at an OS bug, a low level driver bug, or defective hardware.  Applications cannot cause those behaviors on modern OSes.
In your case it sounds more like the OS is restarting, which can only happen due to OS or low level driver bugs. 
Yes, you need to take this to Duet and possibly Apple to figure out the cause.
