could not stop print spooler

almost everyday when i come into work and try to go into the printing page on
the server to make sure all of the printers are online. the page does not
come up no matter how many times i click on the printer page.

and a lot you times all the printers that are on the network stop working
but the spooler says it is started. so i go ahead and stop and start the
spooler and everything works again even though the print spooler says it was
started. But sometimes not all the time when i click on stop to stop the
spooler it takes forever for the blue line to finish going across and then it
will give me a message "could not stop the print spooler service on local
computer. error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control
request in a timely fashion." even tho it give me that message the spooler
seems to stop so i start it and everything works.

So to summarize up what my questions are:
1.why not everyday but a few days a week the print spooler seems like it
stops even though it says started because nothing prints on the network.
2.why when i stop the spooler sometime not all the time i get that message
"could not stop the print spooler service on local computer. error 1053: the
service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."
