before submitting this as an issue on GIT i wanted to get some input from the rest… I was wondering if there is a way to read the state of engrave/cut and if its in the middle of a cycle to force your control device (PC) to stay out of screen saver / sleep mode

Yep will do that. I just wanted to see if it was possible first… had to switch to a different PC for the laser so i could free up the laptop to play with sketchup
