Shared printer works, but won't wakeup from sleep mode

Hello, i have lubuntu 12.10 installed and am sharing a canon d420 printer. I'm using the drivers from canon's website.

I have 2 windows xp computers, a windows 7, and a kubuntu 11.10 that all want to print to that printer.

I've got samba setup so it shares fine. But the issue is that when the printer goes into sleep/power save mode, it will not wake up to print when a job is sent from another computer. That job just gets lost. When you wake the printer up, those jobs don't print. I can only print to the printer after it is first woken up.

What is going on here?
