I was having the same problem with my Mac and my Epson Workforce 545 wireless printer. Here is what I did and it works for me. Hopefully it will for you as well.
1. Click on the Apple icon and go to System Preferences
2. Click on Print & Fax icon
3. Click on Options & Supplies
4. Go to "Print Using:" drop down menu
6. Click on "Select Printer Software"
7. Scroll down to your particular Epson printer and click on it
8. Return to Print & Fax screen and your printer should now be in Idle, Default mode
9. Your printer should be back online and ready to print.

MAC Turn printer on 1 - Open System Preferences by clicking on the icon in the Dock. 2 - Go to the Print & Fax control panel under the Hardware category. 3 - Select the printer you want to take online from the list on the left side of the screen. Then click on the "Open Print Queue" button. 4 - Click on the "Resume Printer" button at the top of the queue window to change the printer from offline to online. Now, restart your computer
