Sytem standby failed !!

wxp ie8.I tried to print something yesterday on my hp psc 1350 printer. It said that I'd run out of paper ( I hadn't) so I put more paper in, also it won't let me go on standy Now I keep getting "system standby failed the service, print spooler is preventing the machine from entering standby, try stopping this service and try again"
My printer says it ready, but I can't print anything or go on standy. Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance Blackpat.

...turn the whole system off completely; remove the plugs. disconnect the printer from pc and leave for five minutes. Remove all paper, then replace, checking no curling of pages. Start the pc. Update the printer drivers. re-connect the printer. If this doesn't work re-post.
