    Does anyone know how/if you can eject the second hdd installed in a macbook or can't you because it is internal?

    Have you taken a look at Disk Utility?
    I don't have an MBP with two internal HDDs, but my experience with Mac Pros and Power Macs and multiple internal HDDs is the inability to eject them.

    You can take a look at System Preferences > Energy Saver > Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible to save battery time if that is your intention.

    Yep, disk utilitiy only lets you unmount the volumes on the drive.
