Feature Request: Extended Pause

Hi there. Yesterday I started a 5h job that I should have left for today. I had to pause Carbide Motion and turn the spindle off, but had to leave everything else running.
It would be great if Carbide Motion could persist the current state to disk to allow me to shut down fully. On restart of the system could then continue at the point it left off, or even better continue with the last z-lowering to work surface. Thanks!

I really like this idea…And just to chime in a bit more, it would be great if CM would checkpoint each time the z rises - automatically - so that if there’s an uncontrolled interruption, it is simple to restart from the last checkpoint. Basically the same feature, but on “auto-save”.

Yessss. That’s a great idea.
