HP OfficeJet Pro 8034e All-in-One Printer

I received an email from HP congratulating me for subscribing to Instant Ink.  That email included the following statement:

 

Always keep your printer online.
Keep your printer powered on and connected to the internet, so it can tell us when to ship more Ink. That way, you’ll always have replacement Ink before you need it!

 

It seems that I need to keep this printer on 24/7.  Isn't that a waste of electricity?
