regarding sleeping mode issue in printer

Hello everybody,
In my company we are using a printer (HP Laserjet P3005dn). Very often, this printer goes to sleeping-mode and does not react at all. Then I need to restart it again. In total we are using 5 printers but this issue arise only for one printer.
Is it something that I can do to fix this issue?
Thanx a lot in advance

Similar issues have been registered on HP's support forums and the usual recommended fix is updating the firmware in the printer.  The latest firmware for the 3005 can be downloaded from

Just choose your operating system and printer model, download and install.

Hopefully this will resolve the issue.
