Ok to leave SSD on all night?

Hello All,

I just purchased an OCZ 120GB Vertex Plus for my HP Envy 14. I have read to disable hibernation (which I have), and I have read mixed reports on letting the computer go to sleep or not (still not quite sure what to do on that one).


Normally I leave my laptop on all night seeding or w.e and I plan on doing backups every so often to my NAS. Is it ok for the SSD to be on all the time? Or should I just let it sleep and let the backup wake up the laptop when it needs to do its thing?

    It is okay for an ssd to be on all the time. There are some variations of ssd garbage collection that do their best work when a pc is idle. Just have to be careful that the ssd is not being written too all night long.

    What is "seeding"? I am not rfamiliar with the term.
