OID to disable/enable printing

OID to disable/enable printing

OID to disable/enable printing

(OP)
Hi @ all,
we are a non-profit educational organisation. Now my company wants to disable printers, when a room is not used.
I do a lot monitoring, using snmp. So I had the idea of disabling and enabling the printers by using snmp. After searching for hours, I only found some status-objects (ro) and no way to do what I need.
Anyone can help me?
regards
Karl

ACCESS read-write
STATUS optional

There is this object. It will put printer in offline state. Only someone could just hit the online button to get it working again.

Not sure there will be a way to disable printer that couldn't be overridden using the panel
