I have 3 Windows 2003 Terminal Servers that seem to always shutdown and reboot almost on a daily basis and the problem mostly seems to occur when people are logging off their session and the system is releasing the printer sessions.

Event Viewer Log Info:
"Printer Okidata ML 320-IBM (from ANNIELAO) in session 1 was deleted."
"Printer hp1320@wh on photo (from KENNY) in session 3 was purged."
"Printer OKI320@SALES on salesprintserve (from KENNY) in session 3 was deleted."

All these warnings and then:
The previous system shutdown at 5:55:10 PM on 2/21/2007 was unexpected.
