I have an HP office jet 4500. How do I turn off the sleep mode? I am having to unplug it everytime now to get it to turn back on.

Sleep mode option for avoid consumption of power which was widely used in high end laser technology to save power. This option is not avail in inkjet technology where that much power not required..Even power saving mode not switch off entire internal functions except fusers/heaters.

Can't get the Power Save Mode to turn off

Try looking on the front panel of the printer
press set up button look for Tools or Preferrences then look for power saving mode then turn it off
If the front panel cant have it,connect it directly on a wall outlet not power strip

or more advance

press * and # at the same time then press 1234 consecutively then underware menu should appear on screen
if it does not show you that just keep on doing it until it appears
then use arrow keys and look for sleep mode/power saving mode then set it to 0 or off

Hope I help you a bit.

How do you turn off sleep mode on the hp officejet 4500?

This no doubt violated the warantee, but I got tired of turning the printer around and unplugging the power cord etc.

So I got a cord switch I had (Ace hardware 31089, others will not doubt work) and installed it in the power cord per directions.

Now it is easy to reach behind printer and cycle the power with the power cord switch and thus wake up the printer.

HP Officejet 6500 will not print after sleep mode

Move the printer to a different location and keep it closer to the connected device (e.g. router) and away from large metal objects / other electromagnetic devices for stronger signal strength.
