    If I replace my mid-2007 iMac's internal HDD with an SSD, will Snow Leopard still present me with the "Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible" checkbox on the Energy Saver power settings screen? If so, do I tick it or not? I will still have an HDD for Time Machine connected via FW800.

    It will still show it. Ticking it or not ticking it does not make a difference with an SSD. Because they don't have a spin up time like HDDs.

    SSD is just a different kind of hard drive, so yes, tick it. It will at least affect the HDs that are connected

    Great - thanks. I figured that was the case but just wanted to make sure.
