Canon lide scanner makes windows startup slow

I notice that having the canon lide usb scanner plugged in makes windows start very slow. You can hear a scanner noise (like if scanner makes a pass) then all icons in tray load.

Is there any way to deal with this, I mean have the scanner available but not have to wait every windows boot to "load"?

keep the scanner off when not in use or disable that cannon software at startup.

I don't see any entry in startup menu (I usually uncheck all things I can but the really necessary). And unpluggin usb isn't practical.

How do I keep the scanner off? It doesn't have a switch, just takes the power via usb.

I have the same problem with several USB devices (printer, scanner)- Windows seems to hang before getting the desktop to display. I don't use them that much, so I just plug them in when I'm actually going to use them.

If it's not convenient (because of the device's placement), you can try getting a USB hub or extender cables so that the cable is in a more convenient place.

Ha ha, ok.
Doesn't seems to be very polite but might work.

unfortunatly its a common thing with those auto power USB scanners.

ones with the power switch are fine.
