At power on, MK4 should NOT go to last file loaded

Firmware request:  Assuming this is a firmware thing.  When powering on the MK4, by default it loads the last file loaded.  Can you just make it go to main menu screen?

The problem with this is because, after I turn the power on, I go sit down at the computer across the room.  From PrusaLink or PrusaConnect, I try to delete the last file but I can't because it says the file is busy (its loaded on the MK 4 screen at power up).  So now I have to get up and walk over to the printer and change it to the main menu so I can then delete the file and load a new version.

Its best just to let the printer power up to the main menu instead.

Seriously. It might have been a week or more since I last needed to print something. I could see it making sense for a manufacturer's print farm like Prusa where a printer might spend its entire life churning out one plate of parts. But in general, I think this is not helpful. At least give us an option for what to do.

(I would forgive it if somehow it were essential for power loss recovery, but I really doubt it.)
