How do I stop my laptop from freezing when I stream a game?

My problem is mostly on dealing with OBS and Minecraft.

I stream Minecraft using OBS and whenever the stream reaches 15 minutes or more, it starts to slowly freeze bit by bit, until it starts freezing for seconds, making Minecraft unplayable.

This is not a gaming question, but rather a software question, because changing the game settings did nothing at all, so I'm guessing it's somewhere in the laptop that's giving problems.

I own an ASUS VivoBook with a 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-1135G7, 8 GB RAM, using 64-bit Windows 10. There might be more reasons why my laptop keeps freezing.

How do I maintain my computer to stop "dying" from time to time? Do I have to fix my settings or should I change some of my specs?

Edit: A small plus with the issue. Getting rid of background apps help somewhat, but I can't get rid of 3 (OBS, Minecraft, Spotify) for obvious reasons. The game continues to be playable for a few more minutes before it goes back to freezing.
