Default Firewire drive conflicting with suspend/shutdown

This is weird. I made an external firewire DVD-RW so I could move it easilly between my video and main computers. Currently it's connected to my main system. I made an audio CD, then pressed the sleep button. My computer ran through the sequence but rather than going to sleep, the comp basically cut off then back on real quick, but just locked up(had to hold the power button down) I cut the enclosure off then reset my system. All was well, so I set it to suspend.

Well, I realized I had left my disk in the drive, so I came back up and flipped the enclosure back on(realize the comp was in suspend) Oddly enough, my computer came back on too!? No, I didn't bump the mouse or anything. YOu must press the power button to wake this thing up...

It's not that big of a deal. Heck I could use USB if I really wanted to... Just wondering if anyone could explain this, or experienced similar problems. BTW, I do have a USB harddrive too, and it doesn't do anything like this...
Desktop: Athlon 64 3700, 1024M RAM, GF 6200 TC 256M, 2x 80G, 2x DVD-RW
Laptop: Sempron 2800, 512M RAM, Unichrome, 60G, DVD-RW
Macintosh:G4 1.33GHz, 512M RAM, Radeon 9200 32M, 40G, DVD/CDRW
They get me from 0 to 1...
