I have an SSD and was wondering if it's okay to put it to sleep? Someone told me this was bad for the drive but I can't find a straight answer anywhere else about it.

I know SSD's don't NEED to be put to sleep since they use less power, but will still doing so damage it?

Earlier generation SSDs (couple of years back) had problems waking up from sleep. Most of those issues have been resolved with firmware updates.

If your motherboard's BIOS is on its latest version and your SSD is on its latest firmware version then you shouldn't have any problems with sleep mode.
