    Hi, for starters, I apologize if this is in the wrong section.

    Anyways, I recently bought a macbook pro and I installed the printer and applicable drivers. It worked for a little while and now it does not print. I have to keep reinstalling the printer/drivers. I am guessing this only happens when I shutdown the computer. Why does this happen? How can I keep the printer on?

    Thank you

    You'd need to give a little more detail if you want some advice. ei. What printer are you using? Did it just suddenly stop working?

    the title of this thread implies that your macbook randomly prints things.

    The printer works fine on my PC's. Yes, it just stops working for some reason.


    No, the title implies that my printer only works sometimes.

    I read it as your mac printing randomly as well. Might want to make it a little more clear so someone with the same problem can help you.

    That's weird that it is randomly printing. How often does it do this and what does it print? I hope you turn the printer off overnight otherwise you'll have wasted a lot of paper and ink by the morning.

    How does your printer just randomly print documents? My MBP is hooked up to a wireless HP printer, it only prints when I tell it to.
