Disks falling asleep

I''ve been having problems with hard drives falling asleep after a few minutes of inactivity. I'll be editing with FCP, turn around to talk to the client about the edit for a minute or two and when I go back to edit, the drives are always spun down and take 30-45 seconds for all of them to spin back up and wake up, which kinda gets annoying.
In my system prefs, under Energy Saver, I've got "Put Hard disks to sleep when possible" UN-checked but, obviously, they are still sleeping. Am I missing something here?
Im running 10.4.10 on one machine and 10.5.1 on another, both with the same problem. I'm using a mix of G-Raid drives, regular G-Tech drives and Lacie drives, all FW 800. The internal drives are also experienceing this problem.
