Needless complexity for me, Phil.  Since the pi also controls the power 
of the remainder of a horsepower plus machine, the application stopped 
reduces it to whatever the draw of that 25 watt supply is, so the pi 
never sleeps. Similar situations exist for 2 of the other 3 machines, 
and I've the SSR's to do that to the last machine in my hobby shop. Just 
have to find my round tuit. Up to my eyebrows in learning how to make 
stuff out of PETG in a 3d printer ATM. Compared to PLA or PTU, tricky
