Auto-Off is automatically enabled by default when you turn on the printer. When Auto-Off is enabled,

the printer will automatically turn off after 2 hours of inactivity to help reduce energy use. Auto-Off

turns the printer off completely, so you must use the On button to turn the printer back on. For printer

models with wireless or Ethernet network capability, Auto-Off is automatically disabled when the

printer establishes a wireless or Ethernet network connection. Even when Auto-Off is disabled, the

printer enters Sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity to help reduce energy use.

You can change the Auto-Off setting from the printer software.

To change Auto-Off setting


Depending on your operating system, do one of the following to open the printer software:

Windows 8: On the Start screen, right-click an empty area on the screen, click All Apps on

the app bar, and then click the icon with the printer's name.

Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP: From the computer desktop, click Start,

select All Programs, click HP, click HP Deskjet 2540 series, and then click HP Deskjet

2540 series.


In the printer software, select Print & scan, and then select Maintain Your Printer to access the

printer toolbox.


In the printer toolbox, click Advanced Settings, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Once you change the setting, the printer maintains the setting that you choose.
