    Hi,

    I've had an ssd for a while now and it keeps crashing. Mostly when waking up from sleep, sometimes on boot and going to sleep to. I've searched all over the internet but can't find a solution. I have a OCZ agility 2 240GB, firmware 1.33. Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    It's a common problem with Mac's and PC's alike.

    Unfortunately most companies will deny that the problem exists, tell you it's your hardware or have you RMA the drive. :(

    Yeah, damn OCZ wanted to start the RMA process. Well, a clean Lion install it is:(

    If it crashes on boot, you might want to take them up on the RMA.

    But as for the sleep bug, I really don't think a replacement would fix that. Most of the time Sleep crashes have to do with the product line and not just a single (bad) drive.

    Just take a look at how many people have sleep problems with SSD's; http://www.google.com/search?q=SSD+Sleep+Crash
