    hi guys,

    i have a brother HL-1110 black laser printer that goes to sleep after 10 minutes and i have to then push the power button to make it wake up and print

    its connected to a windows xp workstation

    i have loaded the drivers that came with the printer off a dvd and there are no settings in the printer setup to turn off sleep or anything similar

    i looked in the manual supplied and a pdf online but when i try fins sleep or turn off sleep nothing comes up
    or very little on it...not saying how to turn off sleep mode

    any help suggestions appreciated

    If auto power is supported, it should be accessible via the drivers/software. At least in my experience.

    Normal Operation.

    User Manual page 45.

    When powered on and not printing, after 1 minute of inactivity it will enter Sleep mode to save power. After a certain amount of time in Sleep mode without any printing it will enter Deep Sleep mode. After 1 hour in Deep Sleep mode without any printing, it will power off (which is what you are describing). It will auto wake from Sleep or Deep Sleep modes if it is sent a print job. The only way to turn it back on, is obviously by using the power button. Apparently some of the timers can be user configured using the Remote Printer Console, but it doesn't state what can be altered.
