Changing the Sleep Timer/Off Timer Setting
If the printer is not operated for a predetermined amount of time, it can automatically switch to the sleep state (sleep
timer), or automatically turn off ( off timer).
• Administrative privileges over this printer are required to configure sprinter settings.
If a user without administrative privileges proceeds with configuration of settings, a message "You do not have
rights to printer management. Please contact your system administrator." appears.
