You don't say if the scanner *ever* did not behave like this.
FWIW, my HP-Photo-something-2575 All-In-One takes about 10-15 seconds to settle before each page (when it has ink in the printer ; no ink, it refuses to scan ; insane!! unless you're an ink-cartridge salesman)
That doesn't stop me from occasionally scanning a 300 page book when I feel the need (and have ink !!?) ; I incorporate the settling time into my workflow along with positioning the flattening weight etc.

If your machine has a sheet-feeder or page turner, or started doing this some time after purchase, then it would sound more like something was going wrong. But you don't say that it has *developed* this behaviour, only that it has done it "for many years".
