SSD & Sleep Mode (Desktop)

Hellooooooo,

When I bought my first SSD over a year ago I didn't allow my computer to sleep because of things I had heard about nackering the SSD with some controllers + writes etc.

What is everyone's opinion on this, I do afk quite a bit so I would like it to sleep again after say 10 minutes of inactivity but will this have any impact on my ssd's?

I have also read that sleep mode keeps it in RAM and does not dump a massive file to disk like hibernate does.

Thanks.

Like dcx and kgrings, I also have a couple of SSD's in both laptop and desktop and put it to sleep overnight daily and not had a single failure (yet.....so crossing my fingers). My laptop has a Samsung 830 which is a good couple years old and still going strong.

Also, you can find online SSD optimazition guides if you need . I used this one when setting up mine on W7:

Windows 7+ defaults to hybrid sleep mode which is hibernate + sleep. That is, it writes RAM to disk and then goes to sleep. But it can be turned off. Having said that, SSDs do generally have enough endurance these days anyhow.

Why not just turn desktop/laptop off each time, sleep mode is waste of time, ssd boots up just as quick from sleep mode anyway, and u save power and wear and tear as well.
