I have several programs that check all installed printers for each document (WordPerfect, Autocad, etc.). There is a wide format printer that I only use occasionally so it is turned off most of the time. I'm running Win7 64 bit Home with a gigabit LAN. When the printer is turned off there's a 30 second timeout delay. I found a post on the web several months ago to reduce the timeout period, but Windows has reverted the setting and I can't remember the magic words to re-find the post in Google. Can anyone help with which registry key to change, or provide an alternate solution? Thanks in advance.
