Abstract

Auto-answer enables a communicating typewriter to receive or send data with the typewriter unattended. This feature typically requires the typewriter to have power constantly applied so that its electronics is always ready to answer the phone. A mode of power-down, removing power from the electronics when not in use, is desirable for various obvious reasons.
