Ah....  A pleasant experience with a technical support group!

Called Epson on the preferred, special for "pro printing" line.

Got a guy that checked, who confirmed that there is NO power off timer on the 3880.

The reason the printer APPEARED to be off in the morning is 'cause it's going into sleep mode, turning off the lights and display, and sitting quietly...

Also, I talked to him about clogs...  He said the BEST way to avoid them is to keep the printer where the humidity is between 40 and 60%, and the temperature remains between 68 and 75 degrees...

Recommended, not turning it off, let it sleep, keep it covered, and keep it humidified...  I don't think I can get to 40+% on the humidity, even here in the home office where there's a separate humidifier, but I'll do what I can...

OK, enough fiddling around, measurebating, and trying to make it perfect...  Time for the printer (and me) to get some work done...
