Printer Standby (?) - issued by PC or printer?

Hello,

I notice that about 5 minutes after printing on my 1018, something in it moves and makes a short sound - I suppose it goes into a power-save-state or so.

Question: What is this and is it controlled by the host PC or in the Firmware? If it is a power-save-state, can I read this out somehow?

Reason I ask this, is that I don't print a lot and want the printer off power via the gembird sis-pm ( http://www.gembird.cn/main.asp?mode=item&N=5915 ), and I wondered whether I can issue this command together with the "sleep" command - if it comes from the PC - or that I have to check the state before shutting down.

With regards,

Tijmen
