Using the Epson Print Enabler on my Android tablet also my wife's iPad you could print and the printer would turn on. Now I have to manually turn on the printer before I can print from my tablet.

It may be that the printer's Power Off timer is set so that the printer stays on for a set amount of time if not being used before it switches OFF. Perhaps that is why you have to switch it on for it to start working. To do what you want the printer needs to be in sleep mode rather than being powered off.

Check that the printer's Power Off Timer is set to OFF and that the printer's sleep time is set to whatever time you want.

Here is an image that shows how to check the Power Off setting using:

Hopefully this is of some help.
