Power off after filament run out

If I run out of filament mid-print, can I power off the printer and then power it back on again when I am ready to load a new spool? Will the printer remember that it is in the middle of a print? Or do I have to keep it powered on until I am ready to feed in the new spool?

Hello and welcome to the Prusaforum!

If you turn off the printer, the print is lost. The printer should normally detect outgoing filament and prompt you to load new filament. The printing plate must be kept at temperature for as long as possible, otherwise the printed part will detach from the printing plate.
