Auto turn off

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, is there anyway I can get my printer to auto-turn off, like my old Photosmart 5520 used to. I keep forgetting to automatically turn it off when I've finished printing

Many thanks

Auto turn off



Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Use Sleep Mode and Auto-off to conserve electricity.


Sleep mode
Power usage is reduced while in Sleep mode. After initial setup of printer, the printer will enter Sleep mode after five minutes of inactivity.

Use the following instructions to change the period of inactivity before the printer sleeps.
1. On the printer control panel display, from the Home screen, swipe left and touch

2. Touch Power Management, touch Sleep, and then touch the desired option.


Auto- off

This feature turns the printer off after 2 hours of inactivity to help reduce energy use. Auto-Off turns the printer off completely, so you must use the Power button to turn the printer back on.

If your printer supports this energy saving feature, Auto-Off is automatically enabled or disabled depending on printer capabilities and connection options. Even when Auto-Off is disabled, the printer enters Sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity to help reduce energy use.

● Auto-Off is enabled when the printer is turned on, if the printer does not have network, fax or Wi-Fi Direct capability, or is not using these capabilities.

● 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.


Tip: To conserve battery power, you can enable Auto-Off, even when the printer is connected or wireless is turned on.


Let me know how this goes.
