Enable / Disable Rules (SOLVED)

I have managed to transfer nearly all rules from paperUI rule engine to text based rules.

i have been stuck thinking about how to do the last few some input would be appretiated i just cant think about how to get this one working in the slightest

should i make multiple rules and use triggers ? should it be condensed into one rule that is worded better

when i created these rules i used the disable and enable rules option this is not available when using text rules thats where im stuck

my Leaving home routine is one of these rules its split into two parts part one runs from the button press and part two is enabled by part 1 after its run.

Use a virtual switch to enable/disable a rule?

thats what i was thinking myself i have done that for a couple of rules already i was just wondering if thats the best solution


rule "Leaving Home Routine"
when
Item Leaving_Home_Trigger changed from OFF to ON
then
KodiHTPC2_Stop.sendCommand("ON")
KodiHTPC2_SendSystemCommand.sendCommand("SHUTDOWN")
Trigger_PowerOffLR.sendCommand("ON")
logInfo("Rule", " Leaving Home Routine Ran (Routines.rules)")
end

rule "Power OFF LR Routine"
when
Item HTPC2_Online_Status changed from ON to OFF
then
if (Trigger_PowerOffLR.state == ON) {
    Plug3_Switch.sendCommand("OFF")
    Plug2_Switch.sendCommand("OFF")
    Lamp1_Brightness.sendCommand("0")
    BULB6LRMAIN1_Color.sendCommand("64,3,0")
    Bed_Trigger.sendCommand("OFF")
    Leaving_Home_Trigger.sendCommand("OFF")
    Trigger_PowerOffLR.sendCommand("OFF")
    logInfo("Rule", " Power OFF LR Routine Ran (Routines.rules)")
}
end

the reason i had trouble with this rule was it kept turning stuff off when htpc went to sleep this was not what i wanted to happen i only want it to run when called by the button press

thanks i should have just done that in the first place was stressing for nothing lol
