    My wife used to be able to print to her hearts content before I switched over to Snow Leopard. Now whenever she wants to print it asks for an administrators (me) password. How do I change it back so she doesn't need me around to help her print something? What's the use of having a password to protect your account if the printer asks for it every time someone wants to print?

    Try opening system preferences>sharing>printer sharing and make sure it ticked off.
