I have two printers and use them through a switchbox.
Either one with it power off: 127, out of paper, on-line
The (default) hp690 turned on: 95, busy, on-line
The epson lq570, 223, on-line.
The hps listed as idle, the epson as stopped. Changing this by starting or
stopping the printers from localhost:631 makes no difference.
