Re: RPi4 wake up after power failure

Some consider this a benefit since the device is powered off during the period of many power spikes when power is restored and the many heavy draw devices power up causing power surges. As noted a ups can also help in this situ...

You need to open a web browser and enter for the web page address

I have also added my user to the lpadmin group.

I have also added the program system-config-printer to the desktop. It is a simpler interface for managing printers.
