Ok i know nothing about Gcode
I use slicer to process stl files to print i regularly print big ish stuff that takes 12 hours plus so it ends up printing over night

Is there a simple way to turn off the heating to the bed and both extruders once printing is complete

Thanks

Think you have to add some code to your end gcode, in the printers configuration tab..
I don't have it in my mind, but soon as i get home i copy paste it here from my slic3r

that´s how I have the code in slic3r prusa edition, both for extruder 1 and 2, and for dual extrusion setting.

end G-code for printer 1 and printer 2 (extruder 1 and extruder 2):
M104 S0 ; turn off temperature
M140 S0
G28 X0 Y200 ; home X axis and push y to the front
M84 ; disable motors

end G-code for dual extrusion printer:
M104 S0 T0 ; turn off temperature
M104 S0 T1 ; turn off temperature on extruder 1
M140 S0
G28 X0 Y200 ; home X axis and push y to the front
M84 ; disable motors

Space heaters also come in handy if you have a room in your home or office that lacks heating ductwork, is poorly insulated or is otherwise difficult to heat.

Yes what Robins said is correct, although too high of an ambient temperature can cause extrusion problems, especially with PLA.
