Summary: How do you disable auto-answer

(Having seen no replies, and not being able to find the article on any other
system that I access - here goes again.)

Is there a simple way to keep the CBM Modem 1200 from coming up initially
with auto-answer enabled?  There have been several times that I have turned
on my 128 with the modem in the port and connected to the phone line, and,
sure enough, the phone rings and the modem blasts the callers ears with
the answer signal.  I have finally learned to keep the phone line out of
the modem, but now I tend to forget that its unplugged.  Also, other users
in the household don't have the ability or know-how to plug in the jack if
they want to use it.  Come on, is the Modem 1200 such a cheap ``imitation''
that they couldn't put in an auto-answer disable :-) `HEAVY SCARCASTIC SMILE'
(I actually am quite impressed with the little beastie.)
