Is it possible to automatically power down the optical drive in my R61 ultrabay when I either (a) switch to a maximum battery life power plan or (b) go into sleep mode? I noticed that in both of these cases, the optical drive is still powered, and I'd like to save battery power by turning it off. I realize I can manually "safely remove hardware" to do this, but was curious if it could be automated for either of these cases...
