Forseeably, this could be avoided if you disrupt the connection. So, yes, one possibilty is if you either remove the connection to the computer it will be able to go into sleep mode. Either by unplugging a USB cord or by turning off the printer.
PS I hope you are having a great day!

I tried with a different USB cable and still same result.
There is no firmware available. I downloaded the latest software. could you search if there is any new firmware? I couldn't find any.
There are no updates available on windows update.
I updated to a alternate driver and still same result.
Not sure what you meant for sleep options.
For some reason, when printer is connected, it prohibits the computer to go to sleep mode.

From all you have described, it does not sound like this issue is originating with the software for the printer or the harware. By changing both the connection type and the software used the issue still persists, rendering the common factor among these events to be the OS. I would contact Microsoft and see if there is any information on what is going on.
If you do contact them, please respond back to let me know what their response is.
PS have a wonderful day!

Good news.... I got it to work!
I manually turned off the wireless button from the printer, then I connected the printer using the USB cable to the computer. I reinstalled the software program using the USB cable and then I pressed the computer to sleep and it went to sleep!!! Finally.
The problem is with the wireless driver already installed in the computer. It is not letting the computer go to sleep. Is there any folder where these wireless settings or drivers from these are saved?
