I'm looking to be able to enable or manage the amount of time a printer waits until it goes into a powersave mode or something similar to that.

Idle timeout and powersave are different.
Idle timeout, a TCP/IP setting, is the time (in seconds) before a connection is closed ; it is typically used to close down an inactive FTP/TFTP connection for instance.
Powersave is the time before the printer goes into powersave mode.
On my LJ4100s with J4169A Jetdirect cards I can set both using the embedded web server.
For powersave :-
1. click Device tab
2. click CONFIGURATION MENU
3. gives me a choice between 1 min and 4 hours
For idle timeout :-
1. click Networking tab
2. click TCP/IP and Network Settings
3. defaults to 90 secs, 0 secs = disable
Hope this helps, regards

I guess now my main issue is that the older JD cards (J3113A) do not have a PowerSave option on them at all, only the Timeout option.
Thankfully I don't have too many of these cards on my network.
Have a good one,
