    I noticed that very big amount of space take me file called "sleepimage" file. Also I found out through these web sites that is the files contain some information when I gonna get my mac to sleep.

    I think for me it isn t necessary I do not use sleep often even never. So I tried to delete this item but every time on boot my mac that files recover and still have take a lot of space on my ssd. how to delete it?
