When does it do this?
We have a canon hooked up on our lan as an auxiliary printer. Two things I've noticed about it. After a while it powers itself down and doesn't come back up unless you reset it (press the power button). If it is unused long enough we have to unplug the power supply cord for a few seconds, plug it back in and hit power. then it works just fine.
PS the HP (our main printer) never does this.Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it

Are you certain that there is power at all times to the receptacle it is plugged into? I've seen a few times when people would plug into a switched receptacle in homes wired for floor lamps. Instant mystery power! That kind of wireing sometime goes only to one side of the receptacle. Other than that make certain that the drivers are up to date.Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it

It is an intermittent failure in the power supply section. have your AC source checked especially the socket and wiring connection. There may be connection problems in the power source to the printer. as you described it, the mystery happens in two different printers.E7300 | Gigabyte Volar | Asus P5QL PRO | 4 x 1GB Team Extreem Dark DDR2 800 | Palit 9600GT Sonic 1GB DDR3 | HEC Raptor 500W | 120GB, 320GB, 200GB SATA HDD | 20x LiteOn DVDWR | Viewsonic 19" Wide

lol Not as curious as me.
I have no idea how she done it. She wont tell me. I think myself it was maybe an electrical fault and shes to embarresed to say. As I spent a long time looking on the web etc.
Once again thank you all so much If I find out what it was I will for sure post it
