Waking from Sleep: Why are all drives activated?

Recently I added a SSD to my Lion 10.7.5 setup. The SSD is now the Start up disk. I expected that waking from sleep would be fast, but it is not:
first the DVD drive is activated, then the hard drive spins up and then the computer wakes up, a process of around 10 seconds.
To test I disconnected DVD and hard drive and, as expected, wake from sleep IS fast, just 2 seconds or so.

Is there a way to change the wake up behaviour, e.g. the other way around: first the wake up and then (if necessary) the DVD drive and spinning up of the hard drive?

BTW the motherboard is a GA-G41M-ES2L / Q6600 / 4G memory.
