HAL and Cups

Hello list

probably you know the standard cups behaviour of putting the printer in a
stopped status when a printer is turned off. The bad thing is if I turn
again the printer on, cups DOES NOT start it again...and from cups man pages
and website it seems to me that there's no way to do it with a config option
or whatever.
So since this is IMO a needed function in a true desktop environment (and in
fact I'm experiencing problems with it), I was wondering if there's
something that I could do in the HAL realm, such as executing a script to
restart the cups printer when HAL detects a printer powered on (it's an USB
printer, FYI).

Thanks in advance
