Actually, I was discussing a different scenario. In your case, the fault was likely not caused by a surge, but just the fact that when your scanner lost power the software couldn't handle it. I get a similar problems with several external peripherals if I turn them off at the wrong time. My suggestion to use surge suppressors would not have solved your problem, but in case of a lightning strike it might prevent physical damage.
