i have installed windows 7 on 3 lenovo laptops (x60s, x61, t500) and installed AC 5.41 but and have configured them with 5 profiles each with their own default printer preferences but for some reason when i toggle from 1 profile to another the default printer setting does not change accordingly
this is really annoying as i have managed to print documents to the wrong printer a couple of times and it seems to be accross the board on all my windows 7 installations
is this happening to anyone else?

What build are you running? (Help->About) 6JC7xxW
I was able to replicate what you are seeing on 5.40 Build 20, but not 5.41 Build 21 or 22
I did see every once in a while a few second lag between the wireless connecting and the Printer switching.

Did you ever get a resolution to this? I am running 5.42 build 25 (6JC725WW) and having a similar problem. Add that mine is also not automatically switching at all.

no i haven't
i have now deployed 5 thinkpads (x200 with lenovo windows 7 installation disk) and 4 X61 and T500's with my own windows build and downloaded all the thinkvantage software using system update (had to manually upgrade to 5.42 as system update did not pick up on the updates)
the printer default sometimes swaps over but often it just defaults to the original ms windows xps writer and not the the one i had specified.
very frustrating, luckily a lot of my users do not switch locations very often and only print from 1 location but i have some laptop roll outs planned for users who do use this printer default settings a lot and i will get some stick for this.

oh and i have upgrade to 5.42 with no change in behaviour
wired and wireless switching works very well for me, have not had any issues with it (on 9 different laptops) it is just the printer default settings which is not working for me
