When I was doing a course, We were in a computer lab with about 25 computers and one person to a computer etc. In the corner we had a laser printer with a small Windows 95 or 98 machine controlling it. It would sort the documents in order etc. Every 15 or so minutes it would restart and came back on, log it self on and do the same thing. How is this done please, just out of interest ?

Many Thanks Hamish

The printer should not restart every 15 minutes. If it does, something is wrong with it. It also does not need to log in to the server, it just needs to accept data and print it.

Well, the PC should not reboot either. It should just keep working. And, being the print server, it does not need to log on either, it's just there to spool the jobs to the printer. Why do you want it to reboot, what are you trying to achieve?

I Don't know why It restarts. When it logs itself on it goes on as "printer". I don't want to do this I was only asking why it does this/how it works ?

Well, it should not do that. For automatic logon you can use something like this:
