What is the problem?

Thank you

This is not possible to do with host software such as OctoPrint. I suspect using the search bar of the forum before posting might have found some of the many posts on the topic already.

OctoPrint, as host software doesn't know the exact position that the printer is in while it is printing so when the power is lost there is no 'current position' to save. The last sent gcode command is not necessarily where the printer is right now due to buffers.
