How to turn off Standyby/sleep?

Hi,

 

I have a Canon MP250 hooked up to an old netbook running Windows XP, and it is used as a shared printer on a wireless network.

 

My issue is that if the printer has not been used in a day (or sometimes a few hours) it goes into like a 'sleep mode' so that anyone who is trying to send anything to the printer throughout the building gets the message 'printer not responding'.  In order to fix it, they have to go to the room and turn it off and on again.

 

It looks like it goes to sleep, so is there anyway I can get it to remain "awake/active" all the time?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi markpjd,

 

The PIXMA MP250 does not have an option to disable the power save/sleep mode; this is managed automatically by the printer.

I think a firmware update would make my two useless printer useful agian.
