Pausing Prints

Pausing Prints

I'd like to find out if its possible/feasible to update the firmware to do the following if you pause a print

1. Save current position to EPROM (X, Y, Z, GCode Line + Current Temp)
2. Move Z up +- 2mm
3. Move X close to home (Without triggering end stop)

Then you can safely turn off the printer - and continue at a later stage by first getting to temp, move to position and start printing at saved GCode line

The reason I want to do this is because of our (joke) of a country and our power supply. We continuously have rolling blackouts because the useless power utility cannot manage their supply.
I do have a UPS and we are planning to move over to Solar at some point - but I need something else in the meantime when I am doing very time consuming prints.
