Not too sure but if it is a USB printer I would say maybe because when you shut down your computer the power in the USB is cut off telling the printer that the computer has been shut off. Kind of clever I guess I would stand by that. Even thow the computer is off you can still turn it off and one. That would be because the main power source is coming from the wall 120 volts.

Agreed. It wouldnt make sense for it not too. Wastes power, and saves you the trouble of turning it off manually. I have an external Plextor Cd burner that does the same thing.

My HP does the same thing. When I get annoyed by it, I just shut it down first, but the standby mode is pretty eficient, so I usually let it do it's thing.

Im not sure about the Lexmark options but my printer (cannon s300) has an option to disable auto power off, if thats what your after you could look for that, if you just want to know why then I guess the answer is above already
