Windows 7: How do I activate the Server Print Spooler on Laptop instead of PC

How do I activate the Server Print Spooler on Laptop instead of PC

OK... here is my issue.. I can not print remotely with my laptop when my desktop is down but the printer is available.

Current configuration

Desktop Window XP
Laptop Window7
Linksys E3500 with Cisco VUSB for the printer
Printer HP Photosmart C7200 Series

When I have the Desktop on, the network printer works for the Desktop and the Laptop.
When I shut down the Desktop the network printer appears available for the laptop but can not print.
The message I get is ....Server Print Spooler Services not running.

I can only assume that the Desktop is the Print Spooler server.

So how can I print from my laptop without the Desktop being on.

The techs at Cisco is pointing the finger at the OS.

Any suggestions

Thanks

Mike
