Why does the printer always have to be on?

With the right printer, this helps to prevent the print head from clogging. When in sleeping mode, every now and then a tiny amount of ink is put through the head to keep the nozzles clear. Although this costs a small amount of ink, the amount of ink that is lost to cure a clogged print head is much greater so in the end this solution saves more ink than it costs.
