This happened on my new printer too.  Spoke to Epson support in the UK and they told me how to turn off the machine then power on holding the power button and the ??  button not at home to check notes.  This brought on the power resetting menu which allows you to set turn off at any hours you want or as I chose not at all.

The important thing is that both the power button and one of the other four buttons must both be held down during power on.

my new 3880 is a december 2012 build

Turns out it's an undocumented entry in the Maintenance Mode.  Enter Maintenance Mode from Power Off state by pressing Cancel/Reset (Trash Icon) and Power at the same time.  In the Maintenance Mode there is a Power Off Timer entry.  It was set to 12 hours.  I set it to OFF.  Hopefully, in 12 hours it will still be on.

Thanks Elo!
