I saw it as possible options B and C.  Option 1 (B) would be the print
server, Option 2 (C) would be keep the printer where it is and create
the cron scripts.  I seem to recall someone triggering other types of
events on client login, maybe you could use that to trigger the printer
restart.  I'd help with the scripting but don't understand it enough.
