Great printing but it goes to sleep and stays asleep

Summary: I bought one of these a few weeks ago (for £49!) and it is a really great printer when it's awake! However it is inclined to go to sleep, then deep sleep then die! The only way to wake it is to press the start button or in some cases power cycle it. If you plan to use it attached to your PC then it's great, but if you use a network printer hub then you may be in for trouble.
Summary: The Dell 1250c offers a low cost introduction to colour laser printing. As someone who has owned laser printers for several years, the 'lifetime' drum and fuser promising hassle free use was its largest attraction, especially since the print volume i require has reduced substantially recently. I've broken the rest of my review into 2 parts; pro's and con's respectively. Pros.
