I have a MacBook Pro mid-2012 and I love the easy way of putting it to sleep when closing the laptop. I have never used the SuperDrive.
The problem is that after several months of using it and getting it out of sleep correctly when I open the screen, now when I open the screen, the SuperDrive makes noise, just like at startup. It never did that before.
I hate having such a noise when coming out from sleep. Is there a way to disable the SuperDrive?
