The error message that the printer was not responding, not connected,
or not turned on when you printed the job.  CUPS treats that as a
fatal error and stops the printer until you can correct the situation.

CUPS 1.2 will add notification support (it will tell you when a
printer goes down) and error policies so that you can tell CUPS to
retry errors like this...
