HELP- Losing printer driver with sleep/hibernation...



Have an HP printer. I lose my driver with every sleep/hibernation. This is beyond annoying. I was wondering if there's a patch or a way to disable sleep/hibernate?

I reinstall and it works great until we accidentally sleep or hibernate.

Thanks! I am at my wit's end.

I'd configure your power options so it doesn't sleep/hibernate at all until you find an answer. You could even create your own power plan, just go to 'Power' via the control panel.

In the meantime I'll see if I can find a solution to that annoying problem. I just need some details as to pc spec and name/type of printer
