[Tuxaloosa] OT: annoying cd/dvd drive

i have a dell box whose cd/dvd drive opens randomly. it's very annoying. 
has anyone ever had this happen? is there a way to make it stop?
to note: it doesn't happen when the drive is in use (and so does not 
inhibit proper function). also, it happens sometimes before an OS is 
loaded up (ie while looking at the bios or sitting on a  boot menu), so 
i don't think that it is linux's fault.
in short, i would like it to stop opening itself.
