Printer Service Spooler keeps shutting down

My printer service spooler will not stay running. Everytime I start up my laptop, the spooler is not working and I have in to Services and restart printer spooler service (I have a canon mp780). Both the fax and printer are services are set to Automatic but I still have to restart the priinter spooler service. Once I re-start theit,it stay running until I power down and it all starts over again. Any suggestions as to how to keep it running?
