Manage Optical Drive Power Settings on Windows 10

I have a DVD Drive that keeps going into "off" mode. I have to eject the drive and re-insert it to get it power on again when this happens. I did some searching and there used to be a lenovo power manager software for windows 7 that could be used to change this behavior. I don't see a way to do this on Windows 10 now, since that software is no longer compatible. Is there a registry key or other setting elsewhere I can disable the auto power off of the optical drive while AC power is connected on Windows 10? I have a T430 model laptop if that makes a difference.

 

Thanks!
