  • Patent number: 9769343
    Abstract: To provide a sleep mode control system restricting power consumption while an image forming apparatus (ifma) is in a sleep mode (slm) and allowing a user to deactivate the sleep mode without impairing his/her convenience. The sleep mode control system includes the imf entering the slm to reduce power consumption and a power generator provided below a passage floor on which the imf is mounted. The power generator has a power generation unit, when stepped, provides a private power generation and an electromotive force detection unit detecting an electromotive force generated at the power generation unit successively, generating a pulse signal using the resulting electromotive force, and outputting the resulting pulse signal successively. The ifma has a sleep control part deactivating the slm, while the ifma is being in the slm, based on a signal pattern of the pulse signal outputted from the electromotive force detection unit.

  • Patent number: 9286011
    Abstract: An image formation device includes a document box, an operating section, a version check control section, a document data update control section, and a print control section. When receiving a select operation, the version check control section determines whether or not a selected piece of document data has been updated on an external server. If the selected data has been updated on the external server, the document data update control section downloads an updated piece of document data from the external server and updates the piece of document data in the document box. When receiving a print instruction operation, the print control section causes printing based on the piece of document data already stored in the document box if the selected piece of document data has not been updated or causes printing based on the updated piece of document data if the selected piece of document data has been updated.

  • Patent number: 9160882
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a document box, a communication unit, a console unit, a referencing entity management table, and a control unit. The console unit accepts a delete operation of inputting a delete instruction to delete document data stored in the document box. The referencing entity management table allows information about another image forming apparatus referencing document data stored in the document box to be registered therein as referencing entity information. The control unit determines whether or not the document data to be deleted designated by the delete instruction input by the delete operation is referenced by another image forming apparatus, based on the referencing entity management table. The control unit, if the document data to be deleted is referenced by another image forming apparatus, causes the communication unit to transmit the document data to be deleted to the another image forming apparatus based on the referencing entity information.
