CompTIA A+ Question C-34

A user states that a network printer, attached to and shared from a co-worker’s computer, does not always print the jobs submitted to it. The user adds that it seems to happen at different times throughout the day, but at other times works fine. Which of the following is MOST likely the cause?

A. The co-worker’s computer is hibernating
B. The user’s print drivers are incompatible
C. The printer has entered power save mode
D. The submitted jobs are incompatible

Correct Answer: A

The computer might be hibernating. Since the problem occurs certain times throughout the day, the print jobs submitted to it might only be active when the computer is active. If the computer is hibernating, print jobs will not be able to go through the printer.
