'Uninitiate' or standby printer?

Is there a way to make my UP Plus 2 go into standby or 'uninitiate' when it's done with a print job?

Not "automatically" but if your printer has the "Initialize" switch on the front you can hold that down for a few seconds and the build plate will begin to lower and when it reaches the bottom it will move to the rear and all stepper motors and the extruder fan will turn off and all heating elements will shut down, the power light will remain on.
You will have to re-initialize the printer if you plan to print again though.
