I had an issue to refine the defintions of active, busy, idle
and standby.

Active: the printer or subunit is performing it's primary function.

Busy: the printer or subunit is performing a function (not necessarily
it's primary function) and is not immediately available for it's
primary function.

Idle: the printer or subunit is immediately available and waiting
for instructions.

Standby: the printer or subunit is not immediately available but is
waiting for instructions.
