Yes of course it does not have a optical disc or disk drive. But I
thought if there is no such thing nautilus should not try to spin
down. Linux kernel has nothing to do with this problem though.

I have seen lights going off in my pen drive, so naturally as an user
I assumed that nautilus request the kernel to cut down the power and
kernel did that. After choosing "Safely Remove" option my device node
(/dev/sdb or whatever) still exists?

Yeah sure. Nautilus people are in this list. I will communicate with them.
