How to create a dummy printer on SAP on Windows?

If a user prints to LP01, it still makes a call to Windows OS and Windows has to tell it no such device exists. Thousands of entries in sp01 have status Error. When hundreds of print outs per minute do this, it stresses the spool work process and the windows server. How to create a printer that won't try to print?

We trained users to uncheck print immediately box, but every week we get several new jobs set up with this same problem. Even when print immeidately checked, I want a printer that won't even try to print.

if you were on LINUX I would say print to /dev/null which means all jobs are send to "nowhere"
