Re: Buggy Intel SSD 520 Series SSD Firmware

This is why I always set windows to not turn off the harddrive ever.

How do you do that?

I must have overlooked that option in there.

Awesome, thanks.

So this doesn't effect sleep mode, or shutting down completely?

If you shut down completely it'll still turn it off, but the drive won't (in the case of MHDD's) spin down. while the computer is on.

I think putting the computer in sleep mode would still turn it off.

I always set this setting because with a MHDD I don't want to have to wait on spin up to use my computer again, and I figure for a SSD it'd be more ideal for the drive to be as ready as possible.

Though I always kinda figured that a SSD wouldn't really do much when windows tells it to "spin down"
