TP570 CD drive won't stop spinning.

Weird thing about this 570's CD-ROM drive: It won't stop spinning
once it's been used.  It only quiets down if I issue an 'hdparm -y
/dev/cdrom' command, to force it into suspend mode at that moment.

Does anyone else have eternally-active CD-ROM drives?  Better yet,
have you fixed it already?  adTHANKSvance....

PS: Here's the output of 'hdparm -i /dev/cdrom':
