I have another HP scanning device with a sheet feeder, a scanjet 6350c.  
Using Xsane I am able to batch scan and convert to my image format of choice. 
 But for some reason the same options, settings, or preferences do not seem 
to work similar for the G85.

One clue I have noticed that might be a possiable culpret is:
Under Preferences>setup>enhancments> there is a sub entry labeled Automatic 
Document Feeder Modus:  with the 6350c I have 4 choices (none), Normal, ADF, 
and XPA.  When attemting to adjust this setting on the G85 the only option is 

Where can I go from this to finding out why for the G85 Xsane will not allow 
me to select the ADF in the prior mentioned menue entry?

I will have to try your suggestion, how can I get it to save my scanned 
images as *.png, using that command?

Are there ways I can test from the command line or other, and find out more 
information on the ADF on the G85?

Can I manually edit a rc file for xsane to force the ADF option?
