I recently purchased a shining new printer at Costco for a bit over $400. The printer has all the features I want with one major issue. After several hours the printer goes into sleep mode and when I want to print from my device the printer is unavailable. I tried pushing the power button but no response. The printer won't wake up. The only way to wake up the printer is to do a hard power reset by unplugging the printer power cord and plugging it back in. This will do a hard reboot and the printer comes online again. This is an amazing printer, but I am getting tired of plugging and unplugging this thing every day just to print.
Things I've tried. I've given the printer a manual IP address, and my router has assigned a manual IP address to my printer. Yet, my printer won't wake up. I've checked the energy settings under the systems setting and modified the setting but nothing. Sadly, this seems to be reported across other all-in-one laser printers such as brother and cannon and so I haven't returned the HP yet... I'm tempted to buy a Brother printer because my last printer was a brother printer wifi and I never had this issue.
