At our school we have about 25 networkprinters. About six of them go offline on their own. The only way for my users to print again, is for me to restart the printspooler on the printserver.
Does anyone have an idea how this happens and what a can do about it?

I had a similar problem when using anything other then Microsoft's TCP/IP ports.  HP, Dell and Lexmark port software can cause issues just like this.
