how do I tun off sleep function on HP 8600 Plus?

printer goes to sleep, set it at max delay (15min)  When trying to print I have to go to printer, touch screen to wake it up then wait 3-5 minutes for it to come to life.  Sometimes it prints everything in the que sometimes not - I DONT WANT THE DELAY and I dont need it to go to sleep!  cant find any way to disable the sleep function

prdctprtnr, I understand you are trying to turn off sleep...

prdctprtnr, I understand you are trying to turn off sleep mode on your printer. The option you have selected 15 minutes is the longest that you can delay the sleep mode. Do you have the printer plugged directly into a wall outlet? I suggest plugging it directly into wall outlet that could fix your issue.
