Get me off this crazy thing!

Here's a question for the DDR experts (specifically DDR Max 2) in the audience:

I just unlocked Endless Mode (having decided that, to keep my stress levels down, I'd better get some exercise between characters). It's a lot of fun, especially once I turn off regulation and configure it to my taste -- it's great for exercising.

But the problem is, I'm sort of in-between skill levels. I've mostly beaten Light Mode: there are one or two songs that are still kicking my butt, but I'm getting As and Bs on most of them. I'm still very much *enjoying* Light: while I'm doing it well, I'm not yet at the point of being bored with it and needing to move up to Standard. So in Endless Mode, I can pretty much just keep going indefinitely in Light Mode.

The problem is, I don't have endless *time*. I usually have 30-45 minutes to exercise, and then I need to stop and get to work. What I would *like* to do is stop and save at the rest break; failing that, I'd like to say, "Okay, enough: take my score and call this a game". But there's no apparent way to do that, short of just letting myself die on the next song. (Or turning off the machine, and simply not keeping my score, which is a valid but annoying option.)

Any suggestions? Is there a way in Endless Mode to say, "Game Voluntarily Over"? I'll survive if not, but it's a mild pity...
