GT-S80 Scanner, periodically the USB connection stops

Customer Question

GT-S80 Scanner, periodically the USB connection stops working if I power off scanner then power back on it starts working again. As a S/W engr myself this seems like a driver problem so I was just looking to see if anyone else had similar problem.
JA: How long has this been going on?
Customer: It only happens about one every couple of days... Been going on for a month or so... seems to ocur most often during periods, of inactivity greater than 10min...
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Like I said I was just going to check for new drivers...
JA: The printer expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: no
