First of all, welcome to cdrlabs Gixxerboy
Many people find Sony's TurboBoost feature kind of annoying...
You can hold the eject button for five seconds at any time while your computer is on. It will switch back and forth between off and on each time you press it. I, presonally recommend just flashing with a modified Lite-ON firmware from here
and decrease or increase the speed to whatever you
feel is desirable at the time. if you want quiet, then just set it to burn at 40x yourself. If you want to use the true potential of your drive, then leave it at 52.
