Not really going to save you any battery life. It's only active when you insert a CD/DVD disk. The little drain in standby is so little it's not going to help.

If battery life is an issue I would check your systems battery, do you need a new battery? Then look at what apps are running which could be chewing CPU cycles. Of course review your systems settings

Next things I would look into is getting an external battery pack and you might think about changing out your HD for a SSD but that may not be practical.

Dan is correct, the optical drive does not consume much from your battery when not in use. By removing the drive you will create a Frankenstein that allows dust into the electronics through the empty space or need to cover it with a less aesthetically pleasing item than the drive itself. Please tell us more about why you are concerned with battery life.
