it just sounds to me like you have a slow HD. i have two western digital externals plugged into my imac that i had plugged into my pc. one is a 250gig that i've had for probably 4 years. it sounds like you're describing it. if i wait 5-10 minutes between accessing it, it's quite slow to open up. my other one, however, is a 1tb western digital that is less than a year old. in comparison, it is lightning fast. it is my understanding that some have much better response times than others, and reading through reviews of different HD's it becomes quite obvious.

-27" iMac. Core 2 Duo, 1TB HD, 4GB Ram.
-13" MacBook Pro. Core 2 Duo, 250GB HD, 4GB Ram.
-iPhone 3GS 32GB.
-AirPort Extreme.
