depends what type of script youre using batch file
@ping 127.0.0.1 -n 10 -w 1000 > nul
pauses for 10 seconds i believe vbs i honestly cant remember most of my vbs scripts are ripped off altered and merged ones other people have done lol
It's a batch file....I'll try it tomorrow
*runs off to email herself at the other school to remind!
Arrrgggh, cp2025s - nooooo!!!!!! Go to the HP website and get the network express PCL6 driver - it's a known issue with the drivers off the install CD and this driver solved our identical problem.
It says 2020 series but it's the right driver.

There's no rhyme or reason - in our case two pcs were perfectly happy to print to a networked HP CP2025, another in the same room was so slow and kept losing its connection to it and the express driver solved the issue. Found a bit on the HP forums where others had experienced the same problems.
sounds like the pushprinterconnections.exe is kicking in... especially as you say it takes 10 seconds
Right - have solved the issue after some pointers from you lovely people. I tried the delay and it didnt work so even though the printer worked fine when in normal use without the batch file, I decided to copy the .reg file from one of the other printers that does work with the batch file. (before following the advice to change the printer drivers)
Lo and behold, the batch file now works, the printer is defaulting to black and white, and it is visible!
I have NO idea what corruption in the files could have caused that result...would love to know but it is fixed now so I will back away slowly.....
