What is “Auto-release” and why use it?

If “Auto-release” is enabled, then when a user logs on to a printer, they will be told that their entire print queue will be printed off in 5 seconds and will have the option to cancel that. As users will want to print off everything in their queue most of the time, this reduces the average time spent at the printer, without making it more difficult for those who don’t want to use the “Auto-release” function at that time.
