Does the HP Envy 5030 use ink while in sleep mode?

Envy 5030
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Noticing that my ink levels are going down very fast.  I can't see a way of enabling auto-off, so it just spends its downtime in SLEEP mode. Would this make the ink levels fall more quickly?  Ideally I'd enable auto-off, but either way I'd like to stop the excessive ink use!

Hello, 

 

AUTO OFF feature would not function when you have the printer connected in Wireless network.

Ink Level could fall when one prints more pictures/images compared  to text or if the print mode is set to BEST.

Thanks.  Yes, I noticed in the manual that "Auto-Off is disabled when a printer’s wireless or Wi-Fi Direct capability is turned on or when a printer with fax, USB, or Ethernet network capability establishes a fax, USB, or Ethernet network connection."  However, it then says "TIP: To conserve battery power, you can enable Auto-Off, even when the printer is connected or wireless is turned on."  But I can't see how to do that.
