How can I make a HP Envy 7640 printer never go to sleep?

Last Modified: 2021-03-15
This HP Envy 7640 creates a hum while in sleep mode....enough to be annoying at best.  I've researched it and the answers from HP do not work.  I cannot find a way to tell this wireless printer to never go into sleep mode.  Do any of you have a thought about how to do this?  When viewing the options on the printer screen itself, I see how to set the printer to go into sleep mode after 5, 10 or 15 minutes but never "0" minutes.
