I have the LiDE 50 and it's the same. If you reboot the PC, then the scanner does a quick calibration as it comes back on-line. This does not cause any problems to the PC or scanner. But if you wish to, just unplug at rear of scanner and only connect when you want to use it. Being a USB device, there is no need to power down to do this. j.
