I take it that quickly grabbing the disk when the drawer opens before it 
closes again doesn't work?  I usually use my pinkie finger for this.  I 
guess it depends on how much "pause" time there is between opening and 

Ed's paper-clip idea is your next best bet.  It works whether the 
machine is powered up or not.
