we had this Problem with two HP Printers (Using the Adobe Driver)
There was a field in the device settings
Ctrl-D at the End of  job YES
Ctrl-D at the beginning of job NO

I reverted the settings to
Ctrl-D at the End of job NO
Ctrl-D at the beginning of  Job YES

(Translated from German Windows)
and it works
