You can set the time the printer spends idle in ready mode before the printer transitions to a lower power level.

There are two levels of power-saver mode.

  • Low Power Timeout: The printer shifts from Ready mode to Low Power mode to reduce standby power consumption.
  • Sleep Timeout: The printer shifts from Low Power mode to Sleep mode for a greater reduction in power consumption.

NOTE: Increasing the default Power Saver activation times can result in an overall higher energy consumption of the printer.

Configuring Power Saver Timeouts Using the Embedded Web Server

  1. Access the printer's Embedded Web Server (Web Interface). See the Related Content for additional information.

    IMPORTANT: Some features or settings are only visible or adjustable when logged in as a System Administrator. See the Related Content for additional information.

  2. In the Embedded Web Server, click System > Power Saver.
  3. To set the delay before the printer enters Low-Power mode, for Low Power Timeout, click on the current value and then type the desired timeout in minutes.
  4. To set the delay before the printer enters Sleep mode, for Sleep Timeout, click on the current value and then type the desired timeout in minutes.

    NOTE: The sum of the two timeouts is within 60 minutes.

  5. To set Auto Power Off, click Auto Power Off:
    • To power off the device after all timeouts complete, select On, click on the current value, and then type the desired timeout in hours.
    • To power off the device only if specific conditions are met:
      • Select Only When Conditions Are Met.
      • Click on the current value, and then type the desired timeout in hours.

        Specific conditions are when Fax, USB Drive, Wired and Non-Wired Network features have not been activated.

  6. To finalize your selections, click OK.

Exiting Sleep Mode

The printer exits Low Power mode or Sleep mode automatically when it receives data from a connected device.

To exit Low Power mode or Sleep mode manually, at the control panel, press the Power/Wake button.
