I hope you guys can help me. My problem is that after I have made\na scan the bulb stays on.\n\n\nSYSTEM INFO\n\nI have an old Epson 1250 scanner. My PC runs XP Pro/SP2. The\nscanner is attached via USB. When the scanner and PC are switched\non the scanner bulb is off. But after I have made a scan the bulb\nremains on.\n\nIf I unplug the USB cable and re-insert it, the bulb goes off.\nSeems it might be something to do with the driver (????)\n\n\nOPERATION\n\nI make the scan using a graphics application (e.g. Photoshop) to\n"aquire" the image by calling the Epson Twain driver (ver 5.71A).\nI exit the application and the Twain window vanishes too. I can\nnot see anything in XP's Task Manager suggesting any of this\nsoftware is still loaded and calling the scanner. Is this due to\nan XP "service" not closing down?\n\n\nCan anyone advise how to avoid the bulb staying on.
