Lexmark X84/X85 Button Monitor. Background task installed by the drivers for the Lexmark X84 or X85 multifunction printer/scanner/copier. This background task monitors the X84/X85 for activity and interacts with ACBTNMGR_X84/85 above for operations involving the PC (e.g. scan to e-mail). Also, for large copy jobs it relays the current copy count back to ACBTNMGR_X84-X85 so you can view it on your PC.
