I had my prints stop randomly when using USB (well, random enough at my level of observation). USB just isn't suited to real time capability. Solution was to run the prints off an SD card directly.

You don't even need the LCD for this as RH will allow you to browse the SD card and stop/pause/stop prints on board the Felix.

However, you can still look at temps and fans etc... aaaand, take your laptop away any time you like - which is the real benefit.
