Pro-4100 Lenghty time away, sleep or off?
« on: May 23, 2024, 10:32:38 am »

My 4100 will be sitting unused for 4-8 weeks.
This is new for her, she always prints at least every couple days.
Would I be better off just letting her sleep, like usual-- or should I actually turn her off?
I am not sure if there is really a correct answer, but thought I should at least ask
Thanks

Let it sleep. It might wake up after 4 weeks and run a quick self clean but only if it needs to. If you turn it off and back on it will definitely run a clean and waste ink.

Qimage One is the ticket. Very affordable and you just set the timer.
