The two ways I've heard of doing this safely are:

1. Qimage can be set up to automatically print something at user defined intervals (this assumes you leave your electricity on while you're gone)

2. replace your ink with a cleaning solution

Also, if you buy a 24" Canon printer just expect to replace the heads when you come back (or maybe the latest ones can be set up to do periodic nozzle cleanings).
