Well it spins up even without a disc in the drive actually. It is just
quieter and it realizes pretty soon there isn't a disc so it stops.
If you have a disc in there, well you know what happens. There is
nothing I know of to stop it from spinning up the drive when you turn it
on. Although changing the boot order in the BIOS might speed things up
for you. That way it doesn't try to boot from a non-bootable DVD.
Other than that, I leave the drive door opened a little bit. It never
spins that way. If you are going to move around with the laptop,
probably best to close it until it is stationary once again.
