answer 3
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) – WPS has two modes to connect devices together over a wireless connection. One is called "pushbutton" and the other is called "PIN". Pushbutton is by far the easiest method. We will describe how to connect using the WPS pushbutton method, but not the PIN method.

For instructions on starting WPS on your printer consult your printer's manual. However there are some conditions that need to be met in order to use WPS pushbutton mode:

Both your printer and wireless router must support WPS pushbutton mode. Consult your printer and wireless router manuals.
The wireless router must have a physical WPS pushbutton available.
Your network must use WPA or WPA2 security. Most WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if WEP or no security is used.
Most WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if you are using the manufacturer’s default for the network name and no security.

To connect your wireless printer to your wireless router using WPS:

Start the WPS pushbutton mode on your printer.
For instructions on starting WPS on your printer, consult your printer's manual.
Within 2 minutes, press the WPS button on your router.

Yes. You need to have the software installed on your computer Open HP Utility and go to Scan Settings which should be near the bottom. Set the printer to scan and it will show up on your computer. You can then save it as a jpeg, pdf or whatever file you would like.

Yes, the printer will load a paper port scanning program, then place the item face down on the glass, press scan and you will see your item when the program is activated. Then you can attach to an e-mail and off you go!

Question

How can I keep the Envy 4500 printer from "going to sleep"

My 4500 goes off almost as soon as I print something and before I can get the next things ready to print. Is there a setting to control this?

You can't prevent it all together from going into Sleep Mode, but you can set it to go to Sleep up to 15 mins of non activity. Home>Preferences>Sleep>Select the time you prefer

If it is going to sleep in under 5 mins then you may have a bigger issue.

I print wirelessly from my iPad and it's never been an issue. I literally don't check if it's asleep or not. I just hit print and it searches, connects, prints... and s little while later, my daughter shows up bearing my documents (the printer is in her bedroom).

HP has blocked all refill companies from making ink and it will not work with non-HP ink. Do not purchase. I wish someone had told me this before I bought it.

You may use ink from other places, but you do run the risk of getting poor quality ink cartridges. I use Ink Farm ink. I have had mixed results having gotten some that were not very good and threw them into the trash.

Question

can I choose between printing color or in black and white?

With my previous printers, I was able to decide each time I printed a document if I wanted to print in color or black and white. This printer seems to force me to print in color all the time. For most of my documents, printing in black in white is fine and I want so save the color cartridge for when i truly need color. Can I do this with this printer, or did I make a mistake buying this printer?
Thanks for any advice.

In my question I asked if you can choose between color and black and white. I guess should have asked HOW can I choose between printing color and black and white for each document I want to print. Someone answered 'yes' but without knowing how to do this, it doesn't really help me. I've searched the help files and can't find it so I would appreciate advice on how to do this.
