    Is there any way to prevent the optical drive from making that clunky sound every time I restart my MacBook Pro or wake from sleep? It's not really necessary, at least for me.

    Mine does it even when the drive is empty.

    Mine does it empty too, sort of annoying actually now that you mention it.

    I've always wondered about this too. Anyone?

    btw: No CD in drive = clunky sound. CD in drive = no clunky sound, but the longer sound of the disc spinning up.

    Oh, that sound, I thought you were talking about CD spin-up. But still, no there is no way to prevent it. It is necessary in order to check if there is a CD in the drive when you wake up the computer. You wouldn't like it if you put a CD in your drive before waking it up and then when it woke up the computer didn't recognize the CD now would you?
