Feature Request: Inhibit standby on windows

Recommended Posts

I just noticed today after failing a print that Cura does not inhibit standby. The print failed because it went on standby and the heated head blobbed a whole part of my print. It seemed to have disconnected without being resumable as well.

It would obviously be really convenient if it inhibited standby when the print was going, and that is my request.

tell me if I missed a checkbox for it... wouldn't be the first time :lol:

That's what I'm doing currently, but on windows there's a way to tell it not to go into standby automatically (so for example this might be useful so that after an print completes you computer could go into standby by itself). But I don't know if the facility is available through the python API as such.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
