I have a HP 8450 PhotoSmart printer (USB connection). Is there a way to
not to let the printer power on by itself from the computer's request? I
would prefer to power on the printer manually before printing for a
security reason. I am using Windows XP Professional SP2 (all updates).
Also, I noticed HP printer software and drivers added a lot of Windows XP
background processes (hpboid.exe, hpbpro.exe, hpcmpmgr.exe, hphmon06.exe,
hptskmgr.exe, and HPZipm12.exe). Do I need all these to be running like
HPZipm12.exe (is this zip drive feature which I don't have?)?
Thank you in advance. :)

I'm pretty sure it's because they can get in the carpool lane and pass up that line." --Ellen
