If your target is marked as “Slew To” and “Center On”, then when you click Run Sequence, SGP will issue a slew to the target’s coordinates and then perform a plate solve. Then perform centering by repeating the slew / solve loop. This will continue until the centering limits are achieved or the max tries are exceeded. SGP does not plate solve until your scope is pointing at the target.
However, there could be an issue with attempting to run a sequence with the scope still in a parked position. Some scopes will ignore the initial slew if the scope is parked when that slew is issued. It is good practice to always use the ASCOM driver to unpark the scope first and then run the sequence. Also, I believe the Control Panel / Telescope tab will let you unpark the scope once the scope is connected. I don’t think SGP does an unpark automatically.
If you are actually seeing SGP trying to perform a plate solve while the scope is still pointing at the wall, then you definitely have the parked scope issue.
