I had heard that the Xerox Documate scanners worked well.  On the HP, did 
you try checking must close twain after each scan in the 
openbook/advanced/device selection/scanner properties?

Subject: [accesscomp] Best scanner to purchase for use with Open Book

                Hello to all,
Wondering, I recently purchased a new HP Scanner which had an automatic
document feeder and was also high speed.  It really did not work and the
software called PaperPort, was also not very compatible with JAWS.  I
have JAWS 12 and Open Book 9 and would like to know from any of those
using OpenBook what is the best Scanner with an Automatic Document Feeder
that works well.  I know that twain compatible scanners should work well
with OpenBook but not all work well.  Any information you can provide me
would be greatly appreciated.  I need the flatbed scanner with an
Automatic Document Feeder because of my job, I scan up to 100 pages or
more each day and it is essential I have the ability to scan multiple
pages and occasionally text from books, so therefore, a flatbed would be
my best choice.
Any make or model numbers that any one can recommend is appreciated.
I did call tech support at Freedom Scientific but their list of good
scanners were so small that they recommended to me ask those OpenBook
users for their input.  The small list of scanners they gave me did not
have the Automatic document feeders.
Thank you for your assistance.
