I agree about cleanings but nozzle check use a miniscule amount of ink and since that tiny amount goes directly onto the paper there is zero waste generated.

I print about once a week on my 3800 and if not I will run a nozzle check and turn it back off till the next job.

But if you print a lot as you do, then what you are doing if perfect!

Right, but additional fact is that if you leave it a longer time idle, it (the 3880) decides on its own to do a devastating power cleaning cycle, I have found no way to prevent this, it did it with mine just a few days ago after about a month without printing.

If doing a regular nozzle check (let's say once a week or two) will this prevent that power clean ?
