You might be able to wake it up with something like
true > /dev/unlpt0
Or maybe use usbconfig to wake it up, in various ways. Some might make
it do the ink-wasting powerup, though.
usbconfig -d ugen1.2 resume
usbconfig -d ugen1.2 power_on
usbconfig -d ugen1.2 reset
Don't know if that would work with the unlpt device directly.
HP says that printer is not supported with HPLIP, but not why.
