How can we exit Sleep mode?

When our fax enters sleep mode, we can't figure out how to wake it up to send a fax. Help! Please :-) I looked through the book, it just tells how to setup Sleep mode. Thanks!

1Press Menu/Set, 0, 2.


2 Enter the last two digits of the year. Press Menu/Set.


3 Enter two digits for the month. Press Menu/Set.

(For example, enter 09 for September, or 10 for October.)


4 Enter two digits for the day. Press Menu/Set.

(For example, enter 06 for 6th.)


5 Enter the time in 24-Hour format. Press Menu/Set.

(For example, enter 15:25 for 3:25 P.M.)

The LCD now shows the date and time whenever the machine is idle in Fax mode.

When the machine is in Sleep mode, the LCD shows Sleep. (See Sleep Time on page 2-8.)



Hopefully that worked correctly and solved your problem!

The fax continually registers as being in "sleep" mode. Says it's in "Sleep" mode all day even when it is receiving and or sending out. How do I correct that?

Sleep mode will not disable, even when send button pushed, paper put in for fax or receiver taken off hook. Sleep mode set to default 5 minutes.


Press Menu 1,8
then set minutes to 00
press Stop/Exit

This should disable Sleep mode. Please post back with any questions or to rate this solution. Thank you very much.

Our Brother Intellifax 3800 will go to sleep and ignore attempts to send or receive faxes. It will take a docment into memory and go to sleep and not send it or the phone will ring with an incoming fax and...


i don't have the owners manual handy, but i'm quite sure you can disable the sleep mode by pressing a couples of buttons on control panel. that procedure is in your owners manual on the same page as setting sleep time.

BROTHER FAX MACHINE 2800


Your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode function reduces power consumption while the machine is idle. You can adjust how long your Brother machine is idle (between 00 and 99 minutes) before Sleep Mode is initiated. Please note that the default setting is 00 minutes, and the timer automatically resets itself after the Brother machine receives a fax,receives data from your PC, or makes a copy. To adjust your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode setting, please follow these steps:

1. Press MENU/SET, 1 (General Setup), 7 (Sleep Mode).

2. Use the dial pad to enter the amount of time the fax machine is idle before Sleep Mode is initiated (00 to 99 minutes).

3. Press the MENU/SET key to confirm your choice.

4. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.

NOTE: If you frequently print, copy, or fax, set the idle time long
enough to insure that you will not always have to wait for the Brother machine to warm up.
