Should I be turning my printer's power off after use, or do I let it sleep (oftentimes for days at a time)? The old theory of turning the printer off was to let the print heads "park" to avoid ink evaporation. Is that old practice?

I leave mine on. But if you like you can shut your off.

Leave it on if you think the house elves might want to print something after you leave?
