I've always seen it take some time as you are describing. I've always assumed that the delay was the time needed for communication, like you are saying. Usually the larger the print job, the longer the cancel operation will take. I don't know that anything can be done to change this.

*From Epson's User Manual:

To Permanently Cancel a Print Job
Step 1: Unplug the printer from the computer and outlet.
Step 2: Pick up the printer.
Step 3: Throw the printer through the nearest window.
Step 4: Visit an authorized Epson dealer and purchase a new Epson printer.


Its because that part of the (printing) job was already in the printers memory, and not in Window's printer spooler.

See if your printer manual says anything about canceling a job AT the printer.

Kind regards,
