    "Off" as in the power was turned off? or, "off" as in still connected to router [wifi?] but not being used.

    the second one suggests that you may have intruder in your wifi system ... or there's a cell phone connected to wifi that tried to access printer to set it up

    i own as Brother. It periodically week run a cleaning cycle. It is not OFF when it does this - just sleeping. If it is dead if, unplugged from the wall, etc. and starts to move, them your problem is demonic possession. That cannot be cured with a new ink cartridge - only exorcism.
