Just to make sure.....

Have you ensured there are no documents in the print que by double clicking the printer icon?  If there are documents pending in the print que then this will often happen.

You may try to restart the print spooler (Control Pannel, Admin Tools, Services -> Print Spooler)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
