By the way,
It seems that the power off time is being kept in the scanner itself.
I set the power off timer in windows using "epson scan settings" (lets say
for 10 minutes),
then I took the scanner and connected it to a computer with only linux mint
in it (with sane and epkowa).
10 minutes after the first "scanimage -L" use (but not before), the scanner
shuts down.
(I checked it few times and with different scanners)

זה כמו הימים האלה שהאוויר בהיר מדי, צלול מדי, והצורות בולטות לעין,
חדות  ומדוייקות, וזאת אומרת שהגשם קרוב.
