USB Storage & Mounting issue

I have a USB2 external Hard drive that works great with Ubuntu...
only one problem: The drive stays on all the time and the computer
may be re-booted ocassionally. Upon re-entering Gnome after a clean
boot with the drive on before the computer started booting the drive
is not detected by Gnome at all. Note: the kernel sees the drive
fine, I can mount it manually, but it does not appear in the Drives
window, nor is it mounted on the desktop.
The drive re-appears fine when I un-plug and re-plug it in, or cycle
the power on it, but if I don't wait long enough between un-plugging
it and re-plugging it it appears as sdb instead of sda... not a big
deal, just annoying. A USB CF reader I own behaves similarly.
