I have a 2 pc with ssd as system disks both with windows7.
First pc has vertex ssd drive and it has issues with hiber-sleep mode: windows started from scratch after hibernate sleep and don't pickup the hibernate state (as after shutdown).
If I select
hibernate from win menu - the pc powers off and in a seconds turn on again with only black screen and underscoring cursor in the left upper corner. Then if I push power button on the box it will switch off completely and then if power button again - it starts normally from hibernate state.
So the situation is different only in
hibernate-sleep mode: I leave the comp and go away, it then goes to normal sleep in 30 mins and lately (when windows decides itself) to hibernation and here I see where the problem is: after "hibernate sleep" - it fails to restore the state.
I've read that hibernate mode is bad for ssd drive, but I have different situation with my second pc with Intel ssd drive: it has no issues with hiber sleep window 7 mode and started after as expected with all hiber state restored!
So 3 questions:
- why hibernation fails in first comp? May there be some hardware disk protection utilites?
- why intel ssd is ok, are intel disks better optimized for this mode?
- and is really hibernation still very bad for modern ssd and you'll crash any ssd if e.g. using hibernation every day for a couple of years?
