Here's one for ya. I just built a new p3 system, and upgraded to win98se from win98. Everything works perfectly except when I first turn on the system the scanner comes on and scans to the printer/or program if the printer is not on.

umax 3400 usb scanner
One other thing, just now when i turned on my system I did'nt turn the monitor on. I believe the system was fully booted by the time I turned on the monitor, and thats when the scanner scanned. This may be strictly coincidence, and I have'nt tried to duplicate it yet.
