[VS Code]Repeatedly message "Unable to connect to Pinegrow at http://localhost:40001/editor..." when Pinegrow is not running

Most of the time I work with VS Code only.

When I start VS Code with the Pinegrow plugin installed and active, I see the message “Unable to connect to Pinegrow at http://localhost:40001/editor…” after a short while. In all open editor windows. This keeps repeating itself (I don’t know at which interval though). I can only prevent this from happening when I disable the Pinegrow plugin.

Is there a better way ?

I would prefer the Pinegrow plugin to make one attempt, then optionally display this message.
And then (through a button in the UI) to manually check for Pinegrow, after starting Pinegrow a few hours later.
