    Turning printer on

    Turning printer on 18th Mar 17 at 12:05 PM
    My printer is upstairs and on a TP-link smart plug controlled by Kasa app.

    When I turn the smart plug on the printer only has power to it but is not actually switched on ready to print.

    Is there a way to have the printer turn fully on so I can print from downstairs without having to go upstairs first?

    The printer might have a standby function that you could use, so it's not completely turning off/on via the rocker switch debitcardmayhem correctly mentioned...may be!
    If someone is worth thanking - click on the 'Thanks' button on their response. It's just a nice thing to do :-)
