That would have to be on to print.
Have you considered this on google?
....I can't print from my laptop when the PC XP is turned off.
I have desktop XP and a Vista laptop
Printer is connected to Desktop XP through a USB
I was able to add the printer to my laptop through network. I can print from my laptop when the desktop XP is turned on. However, when my desktop XP is turned OFF, i can't print from my laptop.
I want to get to print stuff out from my laptop without having the Desktop XP turned on.
