Plasma 2040

Hi everyone,
I recently got a Plasma 2040 to do small portable/wearable light shows with LEDs. The idea was to connect it to a powerbank and have the lights run. The problem is that the powerbank goes off after a while if the lights are not drawing enough power. I know there are little dongles you can place between the powerbank and the device which keep the powerbank awake by requesting power periodically.
My question is: by using microPython is there a way to code a similar behavior so I don’t need further hardware? Like, having the plasma cyclically require more energy from the powerbank?

To cyclically require more energy you’ll have to light up enough LED’s at set intervals. The current has to go somewhere, and the only safe place to send it is to the LED’s.
