HP 6600 wireless printer won't wake up

My HP 6600 wireless priner won't wake up when I try to print.  If I power cycle the printer it will print for a while then if I do not use it for some time it returns to sleep mode and will not print.  I can ping to printer so I know it is on the network.  I have the printer plugged directly into an AC outlet.  The contgrol panel on the printer is still working but the only way I can get the printer to wakeuo is to power cycle it.  I am getting tired of have to do this.  Please help!!!!!
