Note: If you are accessing Xerox CentreWare Internet Services for the first time after printer installation, you will be prompted to change the default Administrator Account password. The initial default password is the printer serial number. For additional information, refer toChange the System Administrator Password for CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS).

Power Management Settings

The amount of electricity the printer consumes depends on the way it is used. This device is designed and configured to enable you to reduce your electricity usage.

Power Saver modes are enabled on your device by default to reduce energy consumption. If the printer is not used for a specified period, it transitions to Low Power mode, then to Very Low Power mode. In these modes, to enable reduced-power consumption, only essential functions remain active.

Note: Changing the default Power Saver activation times can result in an overall higher energy consumption of the printer. Before you switch off Power Saver modes or set a longer activation times, consider the increase in printer power consumption.

You can also enable the printer to power off automatically, either after a specific amount of time, or when no activity is detected by the printer.

Note: The Auto Power Off feature is not enabled at the factory due to network activity, it is provided as an option and can be configured at any time. For instructions, refer to Configuring Auto Power Off below.
