If you use to turn your printer on and off, it could be a bad thing if you arent using a a power strip. When you turn the printer off it seats the printer head into a very special position before it completley shut down to protect the printer. When using a power strip it turns the power on and off, and dosent allow the printer to reseting the head in the correct position, But in the long way
it might hurt the printer more then its usefull.
