Windows 7 printer driver for HP laserjet 3015 All-in-one no longer does double sided printing.

I've used Windows Update to install my HP Laserjet 3015 AiO printer driver. It has options for doing booklet printing from the main printing screen or from the printer properties "finishing" tab. No matter what I set, when I print, the printer doesn't stop prining to allow me to take the pages out of the output tray and reload it into the input tray in order to print on the backside of the pages. I just prints the entire document in one fell swoop. HP only provides a Windows 7 Universal printer driver for this printer and it is even dumber, now booklet or double sided printing options al all with it and they told me they are NOT updating a product specific driver software for the printer. Need help printing long booklets!
