Increase battery run time on laptops with SSDs
Authored by: bobthfd on Apr 09, '10 09:20:36AM

I'm actually in the other camp, the one that holds when using an SSD as your boot drive you should disable hibernate and only use sleep. While there may be some savings in battery life I think that this is offset by the amount of SSD drive space that will be consumed by writing memory to the SSD. I have 8GB in my MBP and at $3 - $4 per GB I do not want to dedicate that much space on my SSD to possibly getting a bit more battery life.
