Yes, the motors might engage to prepare the clutch pack for the engine start, but they are either off or on, not sleeping vs awake.

If Ford would just fix the cars when they have issues and stop dithering around with hiding behind it being normal characteristics when there is something obviously mechanically or electrically wrong with it, that would help quiet the angry masses.
This noise is a function of the TCM programming. Unfortunately, there are probably only a handful of Ford engineers that fully understand what the TCM is doing before the car is started.

Regarding "waking up", I have no idea why that sequence repeats but I'm sure that it's not because the motors are sleepy.
