NOTE: This printer is Windows ME compatible.
Will work on XP also with correct driver installed.
All Windows versions PRE Vista are programmed in 32bit.
Vista Is programmed in 64Bit Language - therefore many manufacturers simply will not spend the time to re-write software for out-dated products.
As you can see at the bottom on THIS PAGE - only Windows up to XP is supported. Not Vista.
There are no Vista drivers available for PC, so if you are running VISTA - you cannot use this printer on the machine.
The printer probably works fine - however the computer is sending it commands in an unfamiliar language (64bit) so it does not wake up from power save mode.
If the printer IS on a machine with XP or earlier - see page 4-7 of the manual to set the SLEEP mode.
Thanks for using FixYa!! :D
