z-Lift when paused?

Hey, is there a way to have the print head automatically z-lift when it pauses? I have a laptop and have found that when it locks it will pause the printer, so when I come back the print head has melted a little spot where it stopped.


  • In this special case it is a problem. It pauses as laptop goes to hibernation so you can not send anything. Only solution I know is in repetier-firmware with the rescue solution where firmware then does a internal pause with moving to safe position. Otherwise disable energy saving when printing or use e.g. a raspberry pi with  Repetier-Server to print, so it is independent from laptop and connect host to server. Then you can close host and shutdown laptop and print will still continue.
