Mac OS X 10.5: Shared Printer removed from printer list after sleep

If you add a printer that is being shared by another Mac (it is displayed as "Kind: Bonjour Shared" in the Add Printer dialog window) to your printer list, then put your Mac to sleep, the printer may be removed from the printer list. The shared printer may not be removed during display sleep, only during system sleep (when your Mac's sleep light is pulsating).

After waking your computer from sleep, add the printer again in the Print & Fax pane of System Preferences, or by choosing Add Printer... from the Printer pop-up menu in the Print dialog. 

This document will be updated as more information becomes available.
