Disable fast user switching with HP 950 all-in-one
Authored by: donaciano on Feb 02, '04 09:58:29PM

I have an HP Scanjet 3570c which also suffers from FUS. The problem is the program it loads on login to monitor the buttons on the scanner. When one user logs on it's fine, a second completely kills it and both copies die. You'll then have to log both off and log only one back on to get it working right again. Also, I had to install the software for both accounts I wanted to use it in... I'm sure I could have copied a plist file or two, but I didn't feel like messing with it. I'd guess there's quite a few programs out there that will show strange behaviour under FUS and being run by two users. This is great however, it will force software companies to adopt more Unix-ism in their programs and true multi-user capabilities... this should lessen configuration problems and huge registry-like preference hives... as well as encourage cleaner programming practices. :)

I'd look for a startup item and disable it in any accounts you'll never use it on.
