Using 0 x servo

Hi

I’m using the following sub with a 12 CH Maestro to shut down a servo to stop a servo retract from hunting and drawing current. The mechanics it is driving requires it to pull against a stop and lock the mechs. The only way is to over travel the servo slightly which causes it to bind. If I use the 0 x servo command to shut off the servo it works fine but when re activated with say 8000 x servo it ignores the speed and acceleration commands

Example coding below. This is not the actual coding but an example to show where I have the off sub routine . What I am trying to acheive is the acceleration and speed parameters to still have effect after the 0 4 servo has been actioned

10 4 acceleration
40 4 speed

sub switch example
   if pos x
      up example
   else
      down example
return

sub up example
   8856 4 servo
   4000 delay
   off
return

sub down example
   4080 4 servo
return

sub off
   0 4 servo
return

Hope this makes sense
