make lens stay open?

When using upload_images_for in SDM to switch on the USB connection for a while and allow the computer to fetch images from the SD card, the lens always seems to retract. Is there any way I can get it to stay open? Seems a shame to constantly retract and extend it when I only want the USB active long enough to fetch the last picture taken. Maybe some property I could modify to make the camera think the lens is already retracted even though it isn't?

The time before retraction in Playback mode is normally set in a Canon menu.

Not sure what the maximum value or if it can be disabled.

Check your camera manual.
