I've always considered this "feature" a bug

OK, pretty straightforward - try disconnecting first power, THEN USB, and then video.
At least on my TiBook, system goes to sleep when DVI video is connected and external power goes off. Consequently, unplugging USB without power but with video does not wake it from sleep.

Power first: yes.

My laptop travels home with me every night, and it gets used as a desktop during the day with the lid closed. On both my older Ti and my newer Al, unplugging the power first before anything else prevents the wakeup. I don't have a MB* to test it on, but I would imagine the behavior is the same--try it out!

Even if you forget (like I do sometimes) and unplug out of order, there's no harm done. The machine might wake up and go back to sleep, but you don't need to open the screen. Within 5-10 sec of you removing the power, if the clam is closed, it should go to sleep.
