We are having a similar issue at my work, i have applied a fix (Untested as of yet, only about 7 staff members are here during the holidays)

Probably unconnected but hopefully useful I found on my Windows 7 home network that my printers were showing up as offline after they had been switched off then on again. It wasn't until I rebooted the router that they were picked up as online again. I wonder if something similar is happening here?

Oddly this last week (tbh since the March Tuesday deployment) we've had printer offline problems.. Win 7, 2008r2 DCs, with a 2008 print server.
God I miss proper service packs.
Have you installed the April update for 8.1?
