Is there a way to override a HPLaserJet4's automatically going offline when a document is sent to the manual feed tray? [more specifically, the printer requires the Online button to be pushed before it will draw paper from the manual feed bin. there are only two bins and we are trying to make it an automatic draw from the top (manual feed) bin, so we don't have to hit the button each time]

On your printer there should be a Paper Type button, or something like that (I'm having dificulty remembering the name of the button).  You can press the button when the printer is *online* and cycle through the various paper types until you get to the type you have loaded in your MP tray.

Once you have selected the paper type you have loaded in that tray, press the ENTER key to save that setting.

You should then be able to print from that tray without having to press the online key.

You can also change the print priority of the MP Tray, this is done from within the printer menu itself.

For complete instructions on how to do this, read this document:
http://whp-web1.extweb.hp.com/cposupport/printers/support_doc/bpl01538.html

It should answer any other questions you may have regarding your MP Tray and how to use/configure it.
