Re: What's the perceived advantage of leaving the printer on all the time?

Turning the printer off is still an advantage for lower energy cost and less chance of power line surge damage when not in use.


Notwithstanding your other reasons, and also noting that I've decided to reinstate the Auto-OFF after several hours of inactivity, I would point out that turning the printer off does not disconnect it from power.  It goes into a "deep sleep" mode where it still does some things and is still drawing some current, and is therefore still susceptible to power line surges.
