Is the printer kept on 24/7?
Possibly if you reboot with the printer off this problem would happen.
Although I'm skeptical of my own answer...
My printer is a Canon all-in-one which is kept on 24/7, but sometimes when
I try to print to it I get the message "Printer in use" or some such. Power
cycling the printer clears that message.
I think it occurs after I've used it stand-alone to copy something, but it
doesn't always fail...
