I have an HP that is doing the same for the last 2 months. I have to pull out USB and re-insert.
So I will follow with interest.
Sorry I couldn't help.

sounds like there must be a setting perhaps in preferences with a time setting. Maybe it is the pcs hibernate settings?

Have a look through the Canon driver settings , right click on printer , select the "Maintenance" tab and look for the Auto Power button , if you have done this already and it doesn't work I suggest completely un-installing the drivers , run a clean up program like Ccleaner then re-install again , then go back and turn on the Auto Power button .

Another thought about your printer problem , try stopping Windows allowing the USB ports to be turned off to save power , that could well make a big difference as well .
