John, what comes to mind here is that you are turning off your printer with an external UPS, surge surpressor or power strip which leaves your print head unparked. That action can have two adverse effects: 1) the heads are exposed to air and will dry out causing the clogs, and 2) when you turn on the printer again, it will always do a head cleaning before it does anything else. When you leave the printer plugged in and turn it off by its own switch, it know how long it has been off and therefore whether that duration requires a cleaning. It also parks the head on the sponges which keeps them from drying out. But when you unplug it (which is effectively what a power strip does), the printer has to assume its been off for an extended period. Hope this does it for you.
