Scanner light stays on

the light on my Cannon 3200f scanner sometimes goes off after I've used it, sometimes it stays on. Sometimes it comes on even when I haven't been using it.It doesn't have an built-in on/off switch, so the only way to prevent excessive lamp use is to crawl around on the floor to pull the plug out. This is not a practical answer. In it's earlier days it didn't have this problem. I've tried removing the program and reinstalling it. It still does it. Can't find any Cannon Helpline to ask the man. Any ideas would be welcome.

Look for Stimon in Task Manager, To put the light out remove it from the above. You can stop it starting with msconfig as I have and create a shortcut on the quick start bar for when you want to use it. Remove as above after use

They don't put switches on them at all it seems, I inserted a table lamp type in line switch in my scanner power cord.
