JSI Tip 0245 - If your printer won't sleep.

If your printer is capable of sleeping but won't, it may be because you have bi-directional support enabled (even though NT doesn't use it).

Click Start / settings / printers. Select the printer and right click. Choose properties / port and uncheck Enable bidirectional support.
