Sleep mode and SSD's

#1LOLIAmAnAltPosted 5/16/2014 3:24:40 PM
Ever since I started using a SSD, sleep mode has been acting funny.

Sometimes when I leave my computer it does not go into sleep mode.

Instead, the graphics will not show and my keyboard/mouse will not register as activation.
The fans on the computer still are running and the light for activity still blinks (albeit is an unusual fashion)

There is no way to my knowledge to re-activate, it seems to be in a limbo state.
I had to restart or hard shutdown the computer.

Any ideas or solutions?

Did you reinstall your OS when you got your SSD?

Whatever software you use in conjuction with the SSD is probably disabling some related service which is causing it to act funny.

Due to the fact that SSD's use a lot less power and are so much faster than regular HDD's it's recommended to avoid sleep/hibernate all together.

Is that a fact? The second part; I know SSD's use less power.

If you have a SSD and it sleeps fine then I'd say go for it, but some take issue with it (mine included).

Mine has some issues as well. It will go to sleep half the time.
