Look in the BIOS->Boot Sequence and make sure it isn't listed at the top of the boot order.
We have unplugged it, but, it is also where we keep our regularly used files so we can't keep it unplugged for too long. And it also requires a restart every time we do plug it in before we can access it, which then leads to another 5 minute wait.
I'll have my husband check that BIOS
thing when he gets home since I am not familiar with that.
