MacBookSleepFilter: I like how plugging in a USB device will wake my MacBook from sleep, but I hate how unplugging a USB device does the same. Is there a setting I can change?

I run my MacBook with the lid closed all day at work, and so on my way out the door from home I put it to sleep and can just wake it up by plugging in the USB part of my Cinema Display. Problem is, at the end of the day at work, I want to put the MacBook to sleep and be able to unplug everything without it waking up. I couldn't just unplug everything before sleeping, because that would disable the mouse, rendering it impossible to actually put the sucker to sleep. Any way to change this setting?
My solution, but not necessarily THE solution: I'm getting a bluetooth Mighty Mouse, and so the mouse will still work when I unplug the USB from the laptop. But the point stands.
