    Any help appreciated.

    I just installed Airprint Activator (latest version) on my 2009 Mac Mini. My router is the latest Apple Extreme. My iPad 3 sees my printer for a while (few hours), then I get "no printer found" when trying to print. Energy Saver is set to "wake on network access" and printer sharing is "on".

    Anybody had a similar problem?

    Have you tried checking "Activate Daemon Restart" in advanced settings?

    I'll try that. I did see that setting during install, but didn't think much about it. Thanks.

    Update 3 days later: "Activate Daemon Restart" was always set to "on", after all. So with doing nothing, my printer is now always appearing and selectable on my iPad. There must be something on the router or network side that is delayed (for days it looks like) before the printer is permanently defined and accessible. I don't know enough about network congurations, but I seem to remember establishing network nodes is not immediate.
