Increase battery run time on laptops with SSDs
Authored by: danpritts on Apr 07, '10 07:21:28AM

Since this causes RAM contents to be written to your SSD, it will wear out your SSD faster - remember that SSDs have a limited number of writes.

I don't really know how much faster this will kill your SSD; in practice, maybe not enough to care about. However, I've been avoiding it for this reason.

Note that this hint works fine if you have a spinning disk, too, although with a typical 5400rpm laptop disk it'll take more like 10-15 seconds to wake up.
