EC2 status check

I have ‘single stat’ window that is pulling metrics from AWS/EC2 checking StatusCheckFailed to determine if an EC2 instance is stopped/running. When the instance is running, I receive a value, but when the instance is stopped, I get no value which is forcing me to display a blank window. Originally, when I set this window up several weeks ago, I was able to map a ‘null’ value to text (‘off’), but that is no longer working as my window is blank. Should I be pulling this data from the AWS/EC2/API metric?

Thanks for any help!
