[K12OSN] Ongoing printing problems k12ltsp V8

I have the problem with K12LTSP 6.0.0 as well, but I think it's after  
a printer is "out of paper" for a significant amount of time, CUPS  
will take it offline.  I haven't found an option to remedy that, and  
must log into the CUPS web interface and "start" printers a few times  
a week.  I think it's training my folks to keep paper in their  
printers, but it is a pain for me. :)

Is there a setting somewhere that I've missed that will stop CUPS  
from taking unreachable or unprintable printers offline?

Sorry I can't be any help,
