Yes, and more than that, if the device is in power-saving mode, I have to press another button to wake it up first, then put it in scanning mode.
And if I let it sit idle after scanning, it goes to copy mode after a while, and later to power-saving mode.

That doesn't work for me. I selected "Button-controlled scan" and 2 pages, but after scanning one page, xsane stops waiting and I have to click again.
I also tried that earlier without "Button-controlled scan" but using the ADF - still only one page scanned for every click on "scan".
