Autofocus delay and equipment shut-down


#1

Two separate issues here. Running Win 7 SP1 and SGP 2.4.1.

1 - The “auto-focus dialog auto-close delay” is set to zero but after auto-focus completes there is still a 30 second count down before the sequence starts.

2 - At the completion of a sequence, SGP wants to shut down the equipment for the night as it counts down for 30 seconds unless I hit DISMISS… Is there a way to eliminate this message so I can shut things down manually at my convenience?

Please send your SGF file

I don’t understand what good removing this dialog will do. Sounds like you want an option to run end of sequence options when a sequence is not running.

SGF attached Ken. Also is there a way to prevent the shutdown option
after each sequence is completed without having to DISMISS it each time?

Thanks,

Tom

Ken,

private mail follows regarding my posted question…

At the completion of a sequence, SGP wants to shut down the equipment
for the night as it counts down for 30 seconds unless I hit DISMISS… Is
there a way to eliminate this message so I can shut things down manually
at my convenience?

I don’t understand what good removing this dialog will do. Sounds like
you want an option to run end of sequence options when a sequence is not
running.

I thought there may be an option available to eliminate that. Being a
new user I am running test exposures to verify proper auto-focus
calibration and other functions. I do this by running a sequence it’s
complete, I start a new sequence with the same profile, in order to
retest parameters. Should I not run multiple sequences to do this? I am
probably not using the proper mechanism.

I would just prefer to shut down the equipment manually when I’m ready
at the end of the night, but it’s really not a huge deal to click DISMISS.
