I have a laptop that's periodically connected to a local printer / fax / scanner HP 6300 All-In-One Series.  When it's disconnected (I'm away from the office) a message pops up stating that the local printer / fax / scanner is disconnected.  Is there a way to disable this message?

Try this

1. Click the Start button on the Windows taskbar.  
2. Click "Printers and Faxes."  
If your Start Menu is in Classic mode, you will need to click
"Settings" and then "Printers and Faxes."
3. Click the File menu in the Printer and Faxes window that appeared.  
4. Click "Server Properties."  
5. Click the Advanced tab in the Print Server Properties window that appeared.  
6. Uncheck "Show informational notifications for local printers."  
This will disable notification messages for printers directly
connected to the computer.
7. Uncheck "Show informational notifications for network printers."  
This will disable notification messages for printers that are shared
on the network.
8. Uncheck "Notify when remote documents are printed."
9. Click "OK" in the Print Server Properties window.  
10. Close the Printers and Faxes Window

Unfortunately, it didn't work.

"Show informational notifications for local printers."  was already unchecked.  I unchecked the two other check boxes recommended in your posting, and the "Disconnect" message still reapperred on reboot.

Right click ontop of the notification and check in the options.  There is probably an option to disable those notifications.
