6546 QTOF Wash Method Help

Hi folks, 

The standard "Wash and Shutdown" method doesn't appear to record any data at all since the QTOF is basically off and the LC goes to waste. 

I want to be able to extract the BinPump pressure curves from the wash methods, so is it going to cause any issues if I change the Data Storage to "both" in the Method editor?

Also - in the Wash method, the QTOF is still at the same temp and gas flow settings as the normal run method (attached image) 

Can I save some gas and energy by turning these down since the QTOF is basically on standby during the wash method? Or is that not recommended?
