It could be a bad driver causing it. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver for the printer?

Also, go into Control Panel -> Device Manager and expand the category Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
Right click on each of the USB Root Hub options (one at a time mind you), choose properties, click on the Power Management tab, and then clear the checkbox from the option that reads "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power".

This is likely your issue as the printer is losing connection when the computer kills the power to the USB ports.

Hi :) 

The 1100 is so old (think early XP and 98) that its not got USB...

All the best Brett :)

True....I'm so used to seeing the newer printers I guess...

Could definitely be a bad driver issue...

HERE 's the drivers just in case.

Hi :) 

Or the generic driver for MS... none from HP ... or if hes using a parallel/usb adapter....

Time for a new printer methinks...

All the best Brett :)

That's the quandary with any new OS or computer these days. Users find something they like (HDD, printer, monitor, etc.) and it is rendered obsolete by M$ when they update an OS.

I did notice that HP actually has drivers for Windows 7 for that printer which struck me as odd but then again I'm not surprised.

Just curious though, how is the printer connected? USB, Serial, or Parallel?
