Comparative Test: 9 ink All-in-Ones up to 200 Euros: Power consumption
Meanwhile most manufacturers of printers determine power consumption according to Energy-Star, so we publish these data (in sleep mode). Costs are calculated on a rate of 20 cents per kilowatt hour, grossed up for one year.
If you want to test your own equipment like printer, PC, monitor, TV, and so on, you can rent a measuring device here.

The sleep mode (also called Eco- or Standby mode) holds the printer in readyness for a fast next print-, scan-, fax-, or copy-job. In off-mode the power consumption is higher (average 1 watt), but it takes much longer to start a new job.
