When printing from. Smart phone my printer stops when the screen locks

Hp deskjet 2632

Hi, new here!

When I'm printing from my smart phone my printer stops when the screen locks on my phone. It's rather annoying having to stand there making sure it doesn't  lock. I've wasted so much paper abd monthly print allowance having to reprint things. Without changing my phone setting can l stop. The printer doing this?

Thanks

Hi, thanks for replying. 

It's an android phone and l think I'm using WiFi direct but it gives me the option of both when printing . The green light is solid with no flashing.

I've changed the lock on my phone for now. I have uninstalled the app to see if that helps and not tried it since. I've wasted a lot of my print allowance as it's stopped half way through a page.

Thanks
