Epson Smart Panel

  [DELETED] 19:43 04 Nov 2003

I have a Epson Perfection 1250 installed and Epson Smart Panel. Every now and then, Smart panel just keeps popping up.I cancel, and it keeps on popping up time and time again.
The only remedy is to shut down and restart,which is annoying.
Any ideas please

1. Stop resting your elbow on the scanner's front buttons.

2. Uninstall the smart panel software and scan from your graphics application whenever you need to scan, which I suspect is quite a bit on some days, and hardly ever for weeks or months in between.

Smart panel is not really very smart at all IMO.

Thanks for the replys.
I'll try unpluging, if that doesn't work I'll try the download
