Some way to pause interactive components?

I work on a Design Systems team, and am struggling with the concept of adding interactive components to things like buttons. I’m worried that our designers will then be unable to present work that shows hover/active states because without mouse interaction the component will revert to default.

It’d be cool if you could choose whether or not interactive components are play or not within the presentation mode. That way you can either show the component interacting, or set up pre-decided variants without them reverting.

Could potentially be solved in the actual variants themselves, where you could like say if a component starts as this variant don’t revert its state when you “present” it or something like that?
