Deactivation of Stripminers/miners after depletion of asteriods

Hey there!

I'm actually extremely surprised (and also a slightly annoyed) why stripminers do not deactive immediatly after a asteriods gets depleted. Most of the time when I mine I run my strip miners for 3 minutes - I only mine like 1000 veldspar when I actually could get 15000 in a cycle. I mean... When you are doing level 4 missions and you are blowing up ships, the ship unlocks automaticly once enemy ship dissapears from the radar...Why wouldn't the same thing apply to asteriods?

Kind Regards,

Henk Bembom

Well a) because it hurts bots and afkers and b) because it make the survey scanner actually have a point. If you are actually at the keyboard you should never lose any mining time tbh.
