The ProJet® MJP 2500 / ProJet® MJP 2500 Plus printer goes into lower power modes when it has been idle for a period of time. After 30 minutes, the printer will enter Standby mode. After 7 hours, the printer will enter Conserve mode. The UI status will display as in Standby during this time. Sending a print job or interacting with the front panel will start warming up the printer. The printer can be placed in conserve mode by selecting "Standby" in the Tools > Printer Shutdown tabs.

Storing Printer for Extended Time Frame
When the printer is going to be stored for an extended period of time (>60 days) you will need to call a Certified Partner to set up a service call for a Dry Out procedure to be performed. This will clear out any residual material out of printer lines for extended storing.
If you do not plan on operating the 3D printer system on a regular basis and want to shut it down for an extended period of time, follow these steps:
- Verify that the printer is not building.
- Select Tools tab (1).
Select Power Options (2) on the Tools menu screen.
- Next, select Printer Shutdown.
- The next message that pops up is asking to confirm if you ant to shutdown the printer. Select Shut Down.
- The Shutting Down screen will appears next. This lets the user know that the printer is shutting down and not to take any action.
- A message will then come up that states it is now safe to turn the power switch off. Turn off the printer switch on the back of the printer.
NOTE: Unless the printer will be idle for an excessively long time (>60 days) it is not necessary to shut it down. Shutting down the printer will cause longer wait times for warming, because it is warming from a cold state.
NOTE: Whenever the printer is powered down, wait 60 seconds before toggling the power switch back on.
