    I just upgraded my MacMini 3,1 to a 64G SSD drive. I also upgraded the RAM to 8Gs. The issue I'm having is the home screen is "lagging" or something. It seems toi only happen when the system goes to sleep on it's own.

    If I log off or switch users, it doesn't appear to do it. Anyone experience this any? This happens as I move the mouse around and I believe it never happened when I had the standard Sata drive in.

    If you need anymore info on the system, let me know.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Added GPU SS.

    what are the pair of 4gb sticks of ram. what is your ssd?

    one or the other are casuing the issue. the 2009 mini does not run all sata III ssd's in sata II speed. it down clocks to sata I look up your sata negotiated speed and see if it is 3.0 GHz= sata II or 1.5ghz + sata I .


    also google ; kelley rember ram test for mac .

    down load it and run a 2 pass ram test on all availible ram.

    takes a few hours.

    Here are screen shots. The ram is from OWC and the SSD is a 64G M4 Cruicial.

    well that is not what i expected. as it all seems to have fully passed.


    try a google of crucial m4 and sleep issues or hibernation. i kind of remember that some crucial ssds have a sleep/ hibernate issue. i think the revision number of 309 is the older firmware.


    you would want 000f

    http://forum.crucial.com/t5/Solid-State-Drives-SSD/M4-firmware-0309-is-now-available/td-p/80286




    0309 vs 000f
