    New to me HP laserjet M254dw color on win 8.1 and Mint Cinnamon 20. Connected via USB3. Oldest firmware (2017/05)(yay!)(page count 47 so far on orig starter cartridges)

    I have heard (don't ask me where) that letting it shut off, or shutting it off will cause unnecessary wear and tear (during turn-on, I guess). I found last night that if I leave my laptop in sleep mode, it will keep the printer from powering off, else if I shut off my laptop, printer will power off (after 8 hours per setting). So I definitely have the choice.

    Also, while I'm here, comments re compatible toner for this printer? (GPC, Jarbo, CMYBabee, etc)

    Sig since I can't post sig yet :) - ThinkPad T530-2394-3J8, i5-3380M 2.9GHz, Dual boot UEFI/GPT: Mint 20 Cinammon, Win8.1 Pro x64 (with OpenShell), 8GB(15GB/s), Sammy 250GB SSD. -
