Optical Disk Drive

I have a fairly new A665 and would like to turn off or disable the Optical Disk Drive when I am running on battery power.  There used to be a prompt asking if I would like to turn the ODD off when I switched to battery power, but it no longer appears and the battery operating time is reduced as a result of the ODD still being enabled.  


Can someone please tell me how to get this feature (the prompt) back so that I can save the battery time and work longer while running on battery time?  I've searched the net and not found anything that can tell me what I need to do.

Always tell us which Satellite A665 you have when you post here. There is a label on the bottom.
