How can you switch off the "Sleep" function on Brother printers?
Sleep Mode with printers:
With some Brother printers the "Sleep Mode" makes it impossible for the operator panels to reach printer. Then an error message is displayed on the operator panel.
Below we show how to disable the "Sleep Mode".
Using the "Remote Printer Console" tool you can disable the "Sleep" function that cannot be switched off otherwise. The printer then no longer goes into Sleep Mode.
At the following link you can download the tool from the printer manufacturer "Brother".
Example for printer HL-5240:

Now click on "Find".
Select the "Remote Printer Console" tool.
Disabling the Sleep Mode:
The Sleep Mode is now disabled for the printer.
