    Make sure you have the latest firmware for the SSD.

    I would remove the trim hack. There are many reports of it causing just the problem you are seeing. It is not needed with your drive.

    Ok I removed the Trim hack, the beach balling started again. It hanged heaps. I just put back on a couple of hours ago, and since then- nothing.

    They have obviously done something to the latest one that has made it much better- from now on it's staying on.
