    I have had this ssd for 5 weeks now, no problems whatsoever. Was wondering if never sleeping the ssd was fine. Any changes I need to make or let it be. Thank you all.

    If the OS is installed on it, it will never sleep.

    But doesn't third party ssd with no trim gets BSOD after awakening. Some have even mentioned ssd getting out of sleep gets bricked. I don't know hence all these lame questions. Thanks for replying.

    Well then if you're concerned don't put it to sleep. Personally I see little reason to have the SSD set to go to sleep in OSX since it has no mechanical parts that can wear out
