I want to disable the auto on/off facility on my wifes HP Printer and need some advice.The following was found on the HP Website.

To change Auto-Off setting 1. Depending on your operating system, do one of the following to open the printer software: ● Windows 8: On the Start screen, right-click an empty area on the screen, click All Apps on the app bar, and then click the icon with the printer's name. ● Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP: From the computer desktop, click Start, select All Programs, click HP, click HP Deskjet 2540 series, and then click HP Deskjet 2540 series. 2. In the printer software, select Print & scan, and then select Maintain Your Printer to access the printer toolbox. 3. In the printer toolbox, click Advanced Settings, and then follow the on-screen instructions. Once you change the setting, the printer maintains the setting that you choose I am doing it from my laptop which uses Windows 7 but cannot find printer software followed by print and scan.

It won't be if the software is not installed on your PC.

Youneed o do it from a PC on which the software is installed and that connects to the relavant printer

Find the printer's IP address and type into your browsers address bar. Mine is 192.168.1.248

You should then be able to get to this screen,
