    I discovered recently that if I drain the batteries or force into hibernate mode my laptop freezes during recovery and I need to do a hard reset to get back!
    I thought it might just be a firmware update, so I applied the latest one and got the beach ball of death instead. So I reverted back to the previous firmware and now all seems fine except for the hibernate issue.
    My question is: Do you experience the same problem? Is there an issue with the latest Crucial firmware?
    I did a search but the results seem mixed!

    TIA

    What version was your previous firmware?

    My drive was a wreck until I went to 000f. It was like night and day for me. Did you boot from an install disk/usb drive and run disk permissions after you flashed the firmware?

    I used a cd for the boot but did not fix permissions afterwards. I also have file vault activated and wonder if that might be an issue?
    Are you able to restore from hibernate mode successfully?

    Its a legit question. I had lots of hibernate issues with my SSD on the optical bay. All problems resolved when I switched my drives around.

    Nope - no issues on 0309 or 000F in the HD bay.

    Then surely it has something to do with which model MB you have. Mine is early 2011 13".

    Turn off hibernate. You'll save space too and sleep will also be instant.

    Yeah, whoops. I'm not hibernating, I'm sleeping.
    :eek:

    15" early 2011 though.
