Default epson scanner problems

i have a Epson Perfection 1250 flatbed scanner. there are two problems with it. when the computer turns off the scanner stays powered on indefinately. my A7N8X DLX mobo has 2 USB wake-up jumper settings:

1) +5V (default) - wakes up from S1 sleep state
2) +5VSB - wakes up from S3 sleep state

it is on default. i have no clue what any of that means so i never touched it. i did use a Lexmark printer which was smart enough to power down when the computer was off.

the biggest problem i have with the scanner is if i try to use the scanner after a few minutes of idle time it will not run.

while trying to initialize the scanner it tells me something is using it already. even if i close down photoshop and everything else it wont work. the only fix is restarting the computer or re-plugging the USB cable back in. anybody got some ideas?
