Waiting after SAVEAS operation

I have a script that is bulk downloading a large number of webpages, and each one is fairly complex and my sluggish internet connection can take quite awhile.

I'm simply using  _ienavigate to get to the next webpage, then SENDing a ^s to the browser, which saves everything I need.  I then have to shuttle the various files of to other locations.  I haven't figured out how to determine when the save_as command has finished, as the progress bar doesn't appear to be detectable.  I have many thousands of pages to do, and SLEEPing the worst case time wouldn't work.

I found that the "Save Webpage" window appears in WindowSpy, so maybe I can check for it to go away?

Took awhile to make it work, as there's apparently a short window between the existence of the SaveAs dialog box and the progress bar (both called Save Webpage).  I think it's working.
