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
