I don't.

Good question. I think it largely depends on the printer, but dye ink printers have far less clogging problems than pigment ink printers. I turn my HP dye ink printer off every night, but I also print something every day... even if it's just a test pattern.

For what it's worth, a Canon person told me they recommend the 9000 be turned off every day or so because it cleans the heads when you turn it on but if you print every day or so there's no need. FYI, it also cleans the heads every time you open the top cover that gives access to the cartridges.

Equally important is HOW you turn it off. You must use the power switch on the printer itself to ensure that it goes through its shutdown routine and the "capping station" properly seals the cartridges.

You can't just turn off the power source or pull the plug.
