What is causing my HP660C to flash for me to hit resume every time I reboot Win95?  I get a few characters on teh page and that's it.  Things are working but this is very annoying.  Every time I start I have to clear the printer.

This used to happen to me with my HP660c.  It stopped happening after my hard drive crashed and I reinstalled Windows.  This is what HP has to say about the problem.  Sounds like you need to update your LPT.VDX file.  They give detailed instructions how to do it at this address:

(copied from the above address)
SOLUTION: If the software for a Logitech parallel port
scanner is installed, the Xerox Color Manager (XCM) and
Wakeup program installed by the Logitech scanner may
need to be disabled. Contact Logitech Technical Support
at 510-795-8500 to determine what, if any, scanning
features could be affected when these programs are
disabled.

 NOTE: This issue may occur even if the Logitech
 scanner and printer are connected to different
 parallel ports or if the scanner has been
 disconnected from the computer.

Additionally, the LPT.VXD file on a Windows 95 system
may need to be updated. The LPT.VXD file is available
on the Microsoft Windows 95 CD-ROM or from
Microsoft's web site. The LPT.VXD file can be updated
from Microsoft Windows 95, from MS-DOS (R), or from
the Internet.

this was not the problem.  My driver is ok and I don't have the scanner.  I think it is something that loads or commands during the boot up.
