Windows 7: cannot come out of sleep with either spinning drive attached

cannot come out of sleep with either spinning drive attached

I'm running Windows 7 64 sp1 ultimate using a gskill 128GB ssd as the boot drive. Everything operates right, never crashes, goes to sleep after 30 minutes and comes back from sleep when I click on the mouse, perfect every time.

However, if I also attached my wd 1TB 7200rpm sata drive (not for boot, just for media, as the D: drive) to the system, everything works, however it will bsod wen coming out of sleep. So I tried unplugging that drive and using a seagate 1TB 7200rpm sata drive, and the system also bsod's coming out of sleep when using that drive. Anyone have a thought as to what is the deal, and would I have better luck using an 1TB external usb for storage? Both the wd and seagate drives are three years old. I ran chkdsk /f /r on each of them and the symptoms have not changed. As you can imagine, when coming out of sleep the desktop comes up immediately but you can hear the 7200rpm drives start to spin up for a few seconds, so maybe that start-up delay is the problem. Thanks
