    Power Saver Modes
    This printer is equipped with a low power mode and a sleep mode to 
    reduce power consumption when it is left idle.
    When no print data is received for 5 minutes, the printer will enter 
    the low power mode. When no data is received for a further 10 
    minutes (a total of 15 minutes lapse (default settings) since the last 
    received data), it will enter sleep mode. You can specify whether the 
    printer goes into low power mode or sleep mode. The time ranges to 
    specify for the printer to go into low power mode or sleep mode are 
    5 to 60 minutes respectively. Consumption of power during the sleep 
    mode is 10 W or less and the time required to exit from the sleep 
    mode to a print-ready status is about 10 seconds.
    >You can also enable either the low power mode or sleep 
    >Both low power mode and sleep mode cannot be disabled 
    at the same time. 
    >The sleep mode setting has precedence when both the low 
    power mode and sleep mode are enabled. For example, 
    when the sleep mode and low power mode time have 
    been set to 15 minutes and 45 minutes respectively, the 
    printer will go into sleep mode after no data has been 
    received for 15 minutes. It will continue to remain in sleep 
    mode and will not go into low power mode after a further 
    30 minutes.
    Exiting the Power Saver Mode
    The printer automatically cancels its power save status once it 
    receives data from the computer.
