Reboot Printer using Command Line

Dear All,

I want to reboot printer HP LaserJet 500 color MFP M575 remotely using command line and follow instruction this link https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/122155-how-to-reboot-an-hp-printer-remotely.
I have reboot.txt with code

when  I try, it's looking good untill transfer complete. The Problem, when I test "ping hostname printer" , printer always show me "reply" not "request time out". I think, it should be "request time out" when printer rebooted.

Look at the printer when you're doing this.

The printer likely has a JetDirect card which is like an add-on to the printer and may not go down/reboot with the printer.  Bottom line, what you're seeing is likely normal.

printer standby when I' doing this. no jobs, no scans etc.
on bottom line, printer is normal. there is no activity when I reboot using the command line. on command prompt, 0% loss.

am I wrong for doing this ?
