RE: Vista -- Completed print jobs wait in queue 2 minutes before clear
I've had the same problem with a TrendWare print server. The printer works
fine when connected directly to the computer. It turns out that the
printserver does not support Vista. The solution is either to get a new
printserver or share the printer from the computer its connected to.
