    Brother MFC-665CW Always Cleaning Heads Before Printing After Repluging

    I have a Brother MFC-665CW printer and finally got it connected via wireless. I always unplug my printer when I am not using it. But every time I plug it back in and print something, it always do a cleaning of the printer heads before printing. It's a waste of time. Is anyone having this issue and how to fix it?

    System stats:
    Running: Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit

    What else should I add to the system stats?

    I have a Brother MFC-490CW and it's energy star compliant, I would just leave the printer plugged in, but I think there is an option on the printer (in the setup) to turn off the cleaning of the heads upon return of power. I don't think this is Ubuntu telling it to clean as it is printer telling itself to clean.

    Thanks for your reply, but when I had it with Windows 7 and Windows XP, it didn't do a cleaning after getting pluged-in again.

    EDIT: It's not an option on the printer.
