printerpowerd is a little Python script designed for users of older printers who want to save power when not using their printer, without manually turning it on and off.
It runs, checking the printer queue directory every five seconds, turns it on when it sees a job, and turns it off after a configurable amount of idle time.
It allows you to turn a printer on and off (when idle) using X10 or any other abitrary command.
