Epson scanner workarounds for Tiger: Disable Epson Scanner Monitor

Macintouch: OS X 10.4.2 (Part 29)
James S

Someone on August 10 mentioned that they were having problems with the Epson Scanner software on their G5. I had this issue as well; however, I removed the Epson Scanner Monitor startup item from my login profile.

This is used to allow the user to press the hotkey buttons on the Epson scanner; however, it's not necessary to use the scanner. Anytime I want to do a scan, I either open up the Epson scan software (which should be possible through Photoshop as well) manually then do my scanning. No more monitoring software eating up CPU cycles.
Update 2/22/2008: The same bug is still around!

I have the same problem... And epson scanner monitor is not in my startup items folder. I had to kill it from activity menu.
