ScanSnap ix100 info you don’t find in the Getting Started guide easily

Always fun when Getting Started guide makes it hard to find essential information, but the installation mentions it after installing:

ScanSnap is initially set to turn off automatically after a certain time of non-activity.
The power-off interval can be changed from the [ScanSnap Manager – Preferences] window.

To turn the ScanSnap back on, perform one of the following:

  • Press the [Scan] button
  • Close the ADF paper chute (cover) and open it again

The installer then continues to ask to connect it over USB, though the Getting Started guide mentions you can connect over WiFi.

ScanSnap Wireless Network Setup

To start up the Wireless Setup Tool, perform the following:

  • Turn on ScanSnap
  • Turn on the Wi-Fi switch on the ScanSnap
  • Connect ScanSnap to the computer via the USB cable
