Appletalk not "automating"

How do I 'automate' my appletalk once again?  It use to work before, but now I have to restart my powerbook whenever I connect to my HP 4M laser printer.  "Appletalk Active after Restart."

Hi,

Can you please give me more details??

I don't understand that. I have two Macs at home and a HP LJ 4M. All these are networked by the Localtalk network. And on both Macs Appletalk runs after start. This is independent whether the printer is connected or not. You can even run Appletalk on a Mac when nothing is connected (except keyboard and mouse).

Normally you activate Appletalk once in your chooser. Click on the filed saying "Appletalk on" or something like that. (I used the german MacOS before). Then you can close the chooser. That's all. This normally makes sure that the Appletalk protocol will be started after each boot. So then next time you start your Mac the Appletalk protocol will be started automatically.

When things are starting to loose their settings it's likely that the battery is going down. And thats the internal battery, not the PB,s running battery.

Thanks for the answer!  So, do I send my Powerbook to a dealer to get it replaced or do I do it myself?

You could do it yourself, it isn't that difficult but of course the warranty will not be valid anymore if somethings go wrong.
