Windows 7: Printers not responding after "Sleep"

Printers not responding after "Sleep"

After awakening the computer out of "Sleep", none of my printers respond. Only after restarting the system, everything returns to normal. Several hits on Internet - but none seems to offer a practical solution. Who knows what to do?

Depending on how you have them hooked up I would go update the drivers for the printers and the motherboard from their respective sites (manufacturers). I prefer this to the Windows check in Device Manager.

Best I can get to the mobo is this MEDION UK - Driver

Many thanks for the quick reaction! The drivers are the original HP printer drivers (both updated). Printers are an old Deskjet but still serviceable 930c and a 1410. Please note again that everything returns to normal after a restart. And judging from the several posts on the net, this seems to happen with other printer makes, too. Apparently a Win 7 Sleep problem...

Best and thanks again.
