I have recently purchased a HP LaserJet M175nw laser printer which goes into sleep-mode after 10 minutes of non-use. I know sleep-mode uses a very small amount of power, but the flashing light on the control panel is driving me nuts! I know I can turn-off the printer via. the on/off button, but when it is turned-on manually, there is some whirring sound which I guess might be the machine warming-up.
My question is...
Is any toner used during this warm-up (or cleaning) cycle?
Am I better-off keeping the printer in sleep mode, or is it ok to turn off manually?

No, the printer does not use toner during power on or the warmup cycle,
To leave the printer in the sleep mode is ok along the day, ....but if you are leaving the office it is better to turn off the printer.
Hope this answer make all your questions clear.
