That says to me that there is something not right in the external enclosure.

The query of the port during bootup should wake up the drive. If you have it connected via FW, does the drive show up after you've booted or do you have to do the same thing, unplug and plug it back in?

Also, are you using the option key during bootup to select the external or have you only tried it through System Preferences / Startup?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
