leave sata data cable connected but unplug power

I was wondering if it would be okay to just leave
sata cable for my hdd connected while power unplugged. Would there be any harmful consequences?
Are there certain requirements? Right now I have my pata dvd writer connected but unpowered. Is that okay too? Or are there consequences? Please advice. Thank you very much everyone at the helproom.

Not the best policy, but if the devices have no power, it probably won't cause you any grief....Not something I'd advise though, if you don't need them why not take them out?
