USB flash disk problem

I have Linux Mandrake 10.1 Official on an Acer 292LMi Notebook.
When I plug in my USB flash disk (32MB, USB 1.1) everything is OK and I can "see" it at /dev/sda1. The only problem is that the laptop's CPU fan starts to work , thing that shows tha the CPU usage is high.

When I unmoun it and plug it out of my laptop , the CPU fan doesn't stop to work. So, I suppose that something is still running, althogh I have plugged the USB disk out... Any ideas? Is there something else I should do, except unmount?
