SSD Sleep question?

Hello all,
I have an SSD on my built, I was told to disable SLEEP and so I did, but after some research I came to the conclusion that speed is not bad for an SSD. I enabled,it but I had to undo some tweaks, the one I'm concern mainly is the Hard disk sleep feature, since I enabled sleep for an hour I put 60 minutes, is that correct?

Have a screen!

  1. I didn't quite understand your question, BUT, as SSD have no moving parts, like a spinning disk etc, they use very low amounts of power. As such, it is totally unnecessary to put an SSD to sleep. Moreover, SSD's most probably have some sort of power saving feature built into them, that are activated automatically. So don't worry, and enjoy ur SSD performance :)

    Well I'm running it with a 500GB HDD. What I was trying to say was what will happen to the HDD when the computer goes to sleep? that is why I enabled that feature and set it to the same time as the computer sleep timer. I was just asking if it was correct or not.
  3. It doesn't matter :) The HDD will wakeup whenever it the OS requires it to :)
