Canon 6000: Noisy?

Canon 6000. Our college-age nephew got a Canon 6000 a few months ago. He lives in a small apartment about an hour's drive from us.
When we visited him a few weeks ago and played with his Canon 6000 printer and HP 6630 computer, the Canon 6000 suprised us as to how loud it was when it first came on or went through the cleaning process.
1. Is the Canon 6000 normally a noisy printer? When it prints, it is relatively quiet. It is only noisey when it first comes on or goes throught the cleaning process.
2. Is there anything we can do to make the Canon 6000 a little quieter when it comes on? When we turn on the Canon 6000, we always feel that we will get a knock on our nephew's door from his neighbors in the apartment complex, because the Canon 6000 is making too much noise. We especially feel uncomfortable when we use the printer and the computer late at night.
3. Suggestions/comments would be appreciated.
