    I'm planning to put a SSD on my coming MacBook Pro 15" 2011.

    1. Is anyone having any problems like can't wake from sleep or hibernate?

    2. I'm going to put an OCZ Agility 3 on the main bay, do I need to enable TRIM on OS X Lion or it's built inside the SSD?

    3. I will use the optical bay for the 750GB HDD that comes with the MacBook Pro. Is this a good mount? World Computing/DDAMBS0GB/
    If I do that, my hard drive is not protected by studden motion sensor right?

    Sorry I'm new to this stuff. I just want to make sure it works before I buy the SSD and make this happen. :)

    Thanks a lot.

    No issues to report

    I have the OWC Data Doubler, a Kingston V100+ 128 GB SSD in my optical bay and a Seagate Momentus 750 GB in my HD slot.

    My SSD has TRIM built-in. There's a utility you can google to enable Trim on yours.

    If you're getting the Data Doubler, check to see if your SSD is 6 gbps before you buy. You'll regret it later if you put in a 3 gbps SSD.

    Good luck, and remember to search the forums before you post.

    Did adding the SSD via the data doubler reduce the amount of time you can run on battery?
