It is most definately not going to draw that much power constantly(unless you are printing constantly). It is only going to draw that much when you are printing and everything is turned on. If it is an older printer then chances are it won't have any kind of power-saving mode other than turning it off. That's not to say it's going to be drawing a lot of power when it is on, though. If it is on and just sitting there then it probably won't be drawing much power at all.
