I had noted and been irritated by this behavior too - possibly
complicated by employing a wireless-connected MFP. Then (as others have
reported) I thought it had 'gone away' - but then it came back...

Eventually I noted that the lack of flexibility was evidenced by my

Whereas (this) laptop running Fedora 19* and cups 1.6.4 exhibits proper
queue behavior, ie aware response to paper-out and time-out
power-downs/power-off and their correction (without manual involvement).

Of course, cups is not an area where I would even dream of looking
'under the hood', so quite possibly false interpretation on my part. YMMV!
