Zorin 17.1 loses printer after wakingup from auto shut down

Greetings all. After upgrading to zorin 17.1 my op system now loses the printer after waking up from auto shutdown. All previous versions of zorin didn't do this. It is frustrating because I have to reboot the system to pick the printer back up again. Has anyone else experienced this? Since rebooting the op system isn't exactly a quick process I would like to figure out a way to keep the opsystem recognizing the printer after auto shut down.
