Power off is needed for the scanner to loose all state.

The scanner should "understand" all. It works here with a old HP 5300
and a slightly newer HP 5300 labelled as 5370.

Which host controller chip and respective kernel driver is this?

If communication via libusb is not reliable for you, you still can use
the "deprecated" hpusbscsi driver in the kernel - but _not_ the
scanner driver.

The scanner driver will not work - because of the missing interrupt
endpoint notification support - but I do not want to support a 3rd "to
be removed in the future" access method. So I think hpusbscsi and
libusb should be ok.
