Spool print job with main printer off?

Posted: 11-15-2008, 08:01 PM

OK with my desk machine (XP) running the laptop (Vista Ult SP1) prints
to the desk spool, which awaits me turning on the HP LaserJet 4, and
thereby prints.

Or if both the desk computer and printer are on already, the print job
proceeds normally.

What I want to happen is to be able to print on the HP HDX 9000 Laptop,
have that print job spool in the laptop memory awaiting the turn on of
the other computer and its laserjet printer. I don't want to have to run
to the home office and turn everything on just to print later what I'm

It is possible because that is how this laptop worked when I first
purchased it in August 2007. I could have jobs spool on the laptop for
days awaiting Monday morning turning the office computer and printer on.

What did I do wrong, and how can I fix it. Thanks all.
