HP LaserJet 6L sleeps but doesn't wake up

Greetings! I've got a freshly-repaired HP LaserJet 6L (via fixyourownprinter.com). Prints quite well ... until it goes to sleep. Then it won't wake up without my manually prodding it.

It's connected to an AirPort Express via a USB-to-Centronics cable. Using CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.0-beta3 on MacOS 10.5.4.

Looked for printer options that might "wake up" the printer in the CUPS settings (localhost:631). No dice.

Does anyone have advisement on how it might be possible to send a wake-up signal to the 6L?

Thanks in advance!
