I have been waiting for years now to get power control from AstroPrint.
Its just a button or 2 on the display and tweak a few GPIOs on the RPi!
With Astroprint making the printer remote, its stupid that I have to go over to my 3D printer to turn it ON so I can print. Along with powering the 3D printer ON/OFF it needs to be able to turn the lights ON/OFF too so I can see with the camera that somebody has not left something on the printer.
It would also be useful to have the light come ON when the camera is doing layer pictures for time laps photos. No need to leave the lights ON for a 24hour print just for pictures.
Its obviously not very hard since Octoprint has had it for a while.
Here is another Octoprint plugin that controls power without any wires.
