Wireless printing

HP Recommended
HP Office Jet Pro 8600
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

After the printer hasn't been used for a while, the lights on the display go off and the power button continual goes from bright to dim and repeats this patten.  During this time, wireless printing does not work.  Is there some setting somewhere to fix this problem?
