    Macsales technical support told me this morning that 343 is the version that introduces the sleep/awake issue and that the fix is to revert back to 310.

    I thought I read here that folks who moved to 343 no longer had the sleep/awake problem?

    Anyway, that's what OWC told me when I asked by the updater was so flakey on my machine.

    Running a 2010 Mac Pro with the 120 Mercury Pro using firmware 343 and I'm not having the sleep/wake issues.

    Might want to read through this thread even though it talks about the OCZ drive:

    Are you using Hibernation and a sleepimage?

    PS. Anyone find it kind if ridiculous that we still need to jump through hoops (using Windows) to update firmware on these drives?

    Same if you ever have to remap a mechanical drive as well. :eek: Apple's EFI implementation doesn't pass low level information properly to DOS based programs of this nature (why firmware and disk diagnostic software has to be run on a non-Mac system; Intel's SSD updater is the only disk flash utility that I'm aware of that will work with Apple's EFI). :rolleyes: :(
