Great, we're really getting there now.  Is there a way of switching the 
lamp on without doing a scan, so when the user launches their "scanning 
wizard" the lamp can switch on, and then the preview goes ahead (not very 
well, but enough to see what's on the bed), and by the time they actually 
hit the scan button, the lamp will be warm?

I would like to actually leave the lamp on all the time, but will this 
really degrade the life of the scanner?


Thanks for your reply.
