NewDeal Hot Tip 1809Printing
You can stop this by selecting Reduce Priority under Preferences, Lights Out. This will let the printer take priority over the saver.
The freeze is caused by the error routine in the print spooler that is handling the printer communications. Consider what would happen if it didn't freeze. You might never see the error message and would wonder why the document didn't print. This is especially a problem if you're on a network and the printer is down the hall. Remember, there is no printer application running, just the multitasking spooler and driver, neither of which has a Man-Machine interface. We decided it was best if the message was the top priority, to call your attention to it.
