Hi,

I have built a POS System with two computers connected to eaching using "Homegroup".  One computer (B) has one receipt printer for local printing while the other (A) has four printers connected to it, all via USB ports.  For the longest time, I am able to print from Computer B to all printers connected to Computer A with no issues, but just recently, one printer keeps dropping off.  Computer A still prints to that printer fine, but from Computer B's perspective, the printer cease to exist.  I have to "Add printer" every so often.  Does anyone have any ideas on what's going on here?

USB turning off? Printer going to sleep?

No, the printer would print fine from Computer A.  In addition, all printers print fine as well from Computer B, except for that one.

Epson T-20.  Recently, I noticed that other printers have become unavailable too.  I am beginning to wonder if this is USB or motherboard issue.
