Does anyone know how to deal with a HP3054A printer wireless connection that continually tries to connect when the printer is off.  This is really annoying and the only way to stop it I can find is to leave the printer on.  I have a Dell Studio XPS laptop running Win7 64 bit.  The printer is great otherwise.

Re: hp3054a

I'm sorry, I don't understand if the printer is off, how can it do anything?  And connect to what?

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

Re: hp3054a

My laptop keeps trying to connect to the printer and since the printer is off it cannot so my laptop keeps trying - ad ifinitum.  Is there a way to keep my laptop from doing that?
