Generator cool-down with XW+ (not using the AGS)?

The Schneider Conext XW+ inverter has an auxiliary relay, which can be used for several things such as alarms, transfer switch, or generator start.  You can select the triggers to be based on voltage thresholds or state-of-charge.  Everything you need to auto-start a generator seems to be there except "generator cool down".  Is there any way, without using the external Auto Generator Start (AGS) product, to have a cool down period?  

You program the "auto-off" parameter to turn off when the batteries are near full.  Presumably, they're not drawing much current, and therefore the generator has inherently gone through a cool down period.  This is not the case if there is a large load on the AC output circuits downstream.  The XW inverter continues to stay connected to the generator (therefore the generator powers the loads) as long as there is AC voltage present on AC IN 2.  

Is there a parameter somewhere that I can use to tell it to NOT use AC2 unless it has actually commanded the generator to start?
