Printing without user interaction (or triggering)?

Is is possible to "print" without having a user initiate the process by clicking a button? From my review of the API documentation, it appears to me that it is required to have a dijit button on your web map to set up some of the printing parameters and then the click event of the button is what triggers the actual print event.

I'm hoping I can trigger a print event in another fashion such as a when my page has been idle for a certain amount of time or perhaps loses focus. Under the current structure of the API, I don't think this is possible. These circumstances seem odd but I have a reason for doing it this way.
