[sane-devel] how to wake up a scanner

Hello everyone,

First question:
Does anybody know how to wake up an usb-scanner?

The scanner is connected, but goes to sleep after a while. The only two
ways to wake it up I have found are:
1. disconnect and reconnect the usb-wire
2. disconnect and reconnect the power-supply
both solutions are unsatisfying as the scanner (a mustek bearpaw 2400
TA) has no powerswitch ...

Second question:
Does anybody know how to make use of the (otherwise useless) buttons at
the front of this scanner?
(by the way, pushing them does not wake it)

thanks in advance
