Is it ok to hard power off?

Postby deftonite » Tue Jan 08, 2019 1:13 am

The power switch for the Pro2 machine is at the rear bottom corner. I have my machine mounted on a 4-wheel dolly, and rolled under my desk. This means that for everytime I need to turn it on/off, I have to roll it out and reach down almost to the floor. My old back and knees hate it...

I've been getting around this by plugging the machine into a power strip that is on the desk, then just flicking the switch on the power strip. So from the printer's perspective, it's seeing a power outage everytime I'm done using it.

Is this ok? Is there any damage to the hardware by doign a hardpower cut instead of flicking the machine power switch? Not sure if the system goes through any short 'shut down' procedure before actually powering down properly.

Any info appreciated. Thanks.

On the N2 the power switch cuts power exactly the same as unplugging it. I assume they didn't change it for the Pro2.
