Hello everyone,

I currently have a printer problem, as you may have read. Earlier I tried printing somethings and while it was printing I accidentally hit the power buton on the printer. Now it has a printer icon on the lower right hand part of my screen. Once you click on it, it beings up the things you are trying to print. So I right-clicked on all of them and hit cancel and they all disapeared except for one. The status on this one says Deleting - Printing. I tried to put the computer on standby but it brings up a little one option (ok) window that says 'The service 'Print Spooler' is preventing the machine from entering standby. Try stopping the service and try again'. I have no idea what this is. Can someone help me as soon as possible?

I'd start with a quick computer restart. Also, power down the printer totally for about 15 seconds. I've had this happen before, not completely sure what it is, maybe a print job stuck in printer memory. But that's probably the easiest solution, unless someone else with more knowledge wants to chime in here.

I can not believe I didnt think of restarting the computer. Maybe I was more worried about the problem than worrying about how to solve it :whistling: Thank you so much for the help.

Nope, thats just how it usually goes with computers, the simplest things are always overlooked.
