Windows 7: HP printer doesn't turn on automatically

HP printer doesn't turn on automatically

I use to have my HP6900 series printer hooked up with a USB cable from the computer to the printer. The printer could be off and if sent a print command it would turn on, and print. I recently hooked it up with a network cable off the modem/router so that I could also print from some laptops. Well, it no longer wakes up and prints. I have to turn the printer on, and then send the print job. I have looked in the printer setup and see nothing that would correct this.

Any ideas?

Thanks

It's a HP Deskjet 6980.
Doesn't matter anyway. It quit working It would hold the print job in the Que forever. So I just went back to the USB cable.
