Double check your setup...

User Guide

Chapter 2, Sub-Section "Manage Power" - Starting on Page 3


Note the comments about "sleep" - printer uses this option to enter a reduced, cost effective means of saving resources and power.


When is "now" and  "later"?


If you have not done so,

Open EWS

"Sync" the date / time on the printer.


EWS > Settings > Preferences > Date & Time


If you are lucky (as in the case of the Officejet Pro 8740), the option to "Synchronize with a Network Time Server" is available.  If not, that is, the printer does not support this feature,  then you must rely on the "Sync Now" setting.
