The Stepper Library is great! I would suggest the ability to disable power to the control pins to prevent constant current draw from the stepper if holding power is not required. My driver board consists of TIP 120 drivers via a CD4049 INverted Hex Buffer to the Arduino pins 8.9.10.11. If I call a High to all the pins, this removes power to the TIP 120 bank and my stepper stays cool.

Purhaps; stepper.Stop, stepperOff, or stepper.Disable/stepper.Enable

any suggestions?

Thanks!
