Question about Dell All-in-One 968+ Wireless Network Card Bundle InkJet Printer
Is there a way to prevent the printer from automatically turning on when I power up the PC? I made sure the printer was turned off manually with the power button shutting it down completely (not in any sleep or hibernation mode). However, after powering on the PC (Dell XPS 630I with Vista) the printer was automatically turned on as well. How do I separate the power on for each unit? I want to power on the printer on my own by using the Power button on the printer itself, not have it tied in with the PC. Thanks!
You should have two cables. One USB cable for the print data to flow thru to the printer. Then a separate power cable hooked into an outlet from the printer. If you make that set up then the printer will not turn on when the computer turns on. Second option: click on start>run>type msconfig in the box. This will bring up a window, one of the tabs on that window says startup. Look in that tab to see if you can find printer. Then disable it and it will not startup when computer starts.
