Your everywhere huh? It's not a big deal but like you had said, their
software struggles with windows. I'm using both xp and Vista and it behaves
funky. I tried just using the drivers, there seemed to be no loss of

boot up and as I wrote, problems when the printer is shut off. I have
e-mailed them, I'm waiting to hear. Wanted to see if this is a common issue.
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-BIT SP1
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5550 @ 1.83GHz
