A control system may be provided for a reproduction machine system to provide a machine power control for power up and power down operation in accordance with a machine clock and an operator selectable timing program. Benefits to be achieved are lower energy costs due to reduced energy use, reduced wear on machine components in constant use, reduced heat damage to temperature sensitive components, and reduced start-up time for customers. Other potential savings include control of unauthorized use, as well as use level recording.
