Forcing a device update

Is there a way to force the IDE to look for attached mobile devices 
without restarting LiveCode?

Typically I have half a dozen scripts open and I'm doing multiple test 
builds to a cabled phone. I edit some scripts and during that time the 
phone goes into low-power mode (not asleep or locked.) When I tap it to 
show the launcher again, LC has lost the device and I have to restart LC 
to make it scan again.

I can use Terminal to rescan if necessary, but even after it sees the 
phone, LC still doesn't.

I need a message box command to make LC "see" the device again. 
Restarting loses all my open script windows and I have to relaunch the 
stack and set everything up again.
