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.
