Hi there...
Not sure why no one answered you as of yet, but that is what will happen as you are using the computer as a print server.

If you would like to be able to shut down the computer and still print, then you will need a wireless print server and wireless router hybrid of some sort. By installing the wireless print server / router, that will allow you to shut down the computer and print from the laptops, hence saving at least a small bit on the electric bill, not to mention should you want to get rid of, or change out, the current desktop platform.

The wireless print server / router should come with instructions, but basically all you need to do is set the IP addresses of your machines to 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.4 (all the way up to .255 if needed!) and use 255.255.255.0 as the subnet. Recommend keeping 192.168.0.1 open in case you want to add Internet access to your network at some point and use that for the internal IP address of your router.

Hope this helps, and best of luck,

Nikk
