Entering Sleep Mode

The sleep mode function reduces power consumption by temporarily disabling some internal operations of the machine. You can put the machine into sleep mode simply by pressing  (Energy Saver) on the control panel. When the machine is in sleep mode, the touch panel display turns off and  (Energy Saver) lights up.
