MG6600 Series Printer Properties Maintenance Tab

My household seems to forget to turn the wireless printer off after using it (it is set to auto start up), so I want to create a Task Scheduler task to do it automatically several times a day. 


When you go to Printer Properties after installing the MG6600 driver, you get this nice GUI with a tab called "Maintenance".


Among other functions, you can click a button called "Power Off". Actually it puts the printer in stand-by, but that's fine.


Is there a way to access the function of that "Power Off" button via a command line program?


I wrote an AHK script which works fine when you manually run it, but it doesn't play nice with Task Scheduler. Plus it can't run when the computer is locked.
