Printer does not enter hibernate

Product Name: Xerox B230 Printer
Operating System: Windows 10

I just got my B230.

Sleep mode after printing works well, but I want the printer to turn off (hibernate, right?) after 1 hour.

So - I set it to 1 hour in the menu on the printer, but after 1 hour nothing happens. It still looks like it's in sleep mode, as the power button is lit.

I would expect it to shut down/hibernate and turn off the light.

Is this is malfunction or am I missing something?

Hi numzie, the product engineers tell me that the l power button below stays lit when the device is in hibernation but the rest of the device is esentially off. So, this is normal behavior.

Re: Printer does not enter hibernate

Thanks.

So there is no way to know if it sleeps or hibernates?

And when it hibernates I can assume it uses almost no electricity?

Re: Printer does not enter hibernate

I'm told that the device conforms to the Engergy Star standard and when the device is on hibernate mode, it's essentially off with the exception of the power button. So, in theory, it uses almost no electricy. 

One of our engineers has created an image to show you what the lights should look like durning hibernation. 

Hope this information helps.

Re: Printer does not enter hibernate

Hi Tony

Well that is how my printer looks when I'm sleeping mode (after 1 min).

I can't see any visual change after an hour when it's supposed to go into hibernation?
