Entering Sleep Mode
The sleep mode function reduces the amount of power consumed by the machine by disabling power flow to the operation panel. If no
operations will be performed on the machine for a while, such as during a lunch break, you can save power simply by pressing
the operation panel. You can also use the Auto Sleep Time setting to automatically put the machine into sleep mode if it remains idle for
a specified length of time.
