One more question regarding mounting drives

I currently have my G5 set up to awake from sleep at 2:58 AM.

I then have SD scheduled to run at 3:00 AM, and 3:01 AM (2 different drives being backed up right after one another).

On the first schedule, I have it set to do nothing upon completion.

On the second schedule, I now have it set to automatically sleep the computer.

Now, both backup drives are normally not mounted, but when SD launches to perform its scheduled backups, the drives are automatically mounted (like they're supposed to be). However, it seems as if the computer sleeps (SD does this upon successful completion of the second backup), the drives don't get unmounted first.

When I wake my computer up after hours of being asleep, the drives are there, and then about 10 seconds later, they automatically unmount. Point being, I want these unmounted before the computer goes to sleep. Is there any easy way to do this?

Should I just set my G5 up to go back to sleep at, say, 3:30 AM, and not have SD sleep my computer at all?
