HP LJ M203DW Shuts Off Overnight

HP Recommended
HP LJ Pro M203DW
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and older

We have a HP LJ Pro M203DW that shuts down overnight.

We have software that is loaded into the printer memory that needs to stay loaded overnight.

Have these Energy Settings:

    Sleep//Auto Off after inactivity = 1 hr

    Shutdown after inactivity = 8 hrs

    Box checked to Delay when ports are active.


Tried pinging the printer every hour and did not work.

Tried plugging in a thumb drive to the USB port and did not work.

Updated the Firmware and did not work,

Pulling out my hair!!!

How do I get the printer to not shutdown?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
