It sounds like it's no longer aware of the link to your system--as though the power to the printer is on but the link to your computer system isn't there. How is it connected to your computer system? I wonder if there is some sort of timeout mechanism on that end (the computer end) rather than in the printer itself--you know what I mean?

With my Epson 4000, it will go into a "dormant" state after 5-10 minutes or so of non-use but as soon as i sent a print job to it, it starts right up--I can tell when it goes dormant because the light on the printers' LCD panel goes dark.

>>I hate printer problems.

Me too!
