I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on an LTSP network.

I have attached a printer to the server via USB.

The printer is an HP LaserJet Pro P1102 with driver Foomatic/foo2zjs-z2 (recommended).

Often the printer goes to sleep, and then jobs submitted do not get printed. Even when the printer is turned on to force waking.

How can I wake up the printer so the print jobs will be executed?
