This is the response I got from the Epson Helpline.

"If your printer is connected via a USB connection, do not switch your printer off."

In other words don't switch you printer off at all. I have never switched my printers off (and I have three Epson USB printer connected to Three Computers" and I have never had any problems with printing since that advice from Epson.
