I've searched online and there are many tips for reducing inkjet ink usage (draft mode, etc.) but I've found nothing about this basic issue:
If you print only a few pages a day:
Is it better to leave the inkjet printer on all day long?
Or to start it up only when you need to print something?
Basically, does the startup cycle use a lot of ink? Does the printer being on all day cause ink to dry out? If both those things happen, which one is worse?
The printer I'm using is an Epson 830. Please don't tell me I should have bought a different inkjet printer, or a laser printer. I just want to know how to minimize ink usage with this printer.
