I've been having this issue for quite some time and finally getting around to finding out what's going on.
I counted 38 seconds between the time I hit Control-P, and the time the print dialog box opens up. ID looks like it has hung up until it finally opens the print dialog box.
Edit: meant to say that my documents are all very simple text-based pages with a simple letterhead graphic file embedded, 5-6 pages usually.
Any suggestions on how to fix this, such a lot of wasted time waiting.
System: Windows 7, 8 GB Ram

Reinstall the printer would be my first step.
Really? The printer doesn't have problems with any other programs I print from, including Photoshop.
That would be MY first step. It takes no real time and will eliminate it as a possibility. Next thing I would do is trash prefs: see Replace Your Preferences
If neither of those works, I'm not sure what I would do next... Perhaps have a look at what else is running that could be slowing things down.
