HP LaserJet 4100 PCL 5e driver - online/offline problem

I am using a Standard TCP/IP Port with this driver in Windows 2000 professional. When I am printing a job and I have to change paper, the printer will go offline. When I add paper and put the Laserjet 4100n back online. The driver at the workstation still thinks the printer is offline. If I reboot everything works again. How can I get the printer software back online without rebooting the computer?
