I don't press the button. What I did for a work-around was to drag and drop a link to that drive onto my Quick Launch area. Then I just right click on the link and select "Eject" in the drop down menu. I wasn't too excited about having to do it this way, but it's actually more convenient now that I'm used to it than reaching down to press the actual button. Check out the pic I attached.
Feel free to PM me with any other questions. I'd be glad to help.
