    On latest drivers from apple and HP.com/support this april 2010:

    The drivers send a generic signal into the printer to pause after each print. This can really get aggravating.

    I found a fix for it however, remove the generic drivers from apple for HP, remove your installed driver from HP.

    Go to hp.com/support download newest driver (currently 1 April 2010)
    Install driver as normal

    Follow these steps:
    • Install new driver by double clicking it dur
    • System Preferences --> Print & Fax
    • Double click on your desired HP printer, this will open the printer window for that printer
    • Click on the right icon "Printer Setup"
    • Go to "Utility" and click the button in there "Open Printer Utility," this will open your default internet browser and log you into the printer (be sure it's connected via USB)
    • At the top, click on "Settings"
    • Then select "System Setup"
    • Turn "Auto Continue" option to "On"

    Then click "Apply" button at bottom right. And you're set. Not sure why the latest drivers screw with this.

    I can't find any drivers from HP, they just keep saying that they are included in Snow leopard. I still can't print after the 10.6.3 update with my HP 4200 its KILLING ME. I can print from parallels though
