    We are running Mac OS 10.4 in a student lab. Leopard asks for an administrator password to unpause a printer, and our students do not have the admin password for obvious reasons, but a certain printer keeps doing this. Is there anything that can be done to stop having to authenticate for this kind of event?

    same problem

    Hi I have the same issue, currently running 10.5.7 with Active Directory accounts. Once the printers are paused the user needs someone with Admin Rights to unpause it. Has anyone found a solution to this?

    From another website: link. I haven't tested out this solution personally so make a backup of the pertinent files before modifying them willy-nilly.
