Scanner Light Does Not Turn Off

Does anyone know if the “Article ID: 960496-The Monitor May Not Turn Off on a
Windows XP-based Computer even though you set the monitor to Turn Off after a
period of inactivity†also applies to a Scanner Light.
I have a Visioneer One Touch 5800 USB Scanner that I have set to turn off
after 20 minutes of inactivity but the scanner light does not turn off. It
remains on all the time I have the Computer turned on.

On my previous Dell Dimension 4700 computer with Windows XP Pro, SP2 the
Scanner light did turn off after a period of inactivity.

Thanks for any replies.

Umm... does it mention a Scanner Light?

Hint.

Power light, or the light that is used for scanning? If the latter,
then you might want to try uninstalling then reinstalling your scanner
- if you're sure you've got up-to-date drivers.
