Windows 7: Wish List Item Directed to OS & MOBO Creators

Wish List Item Directed to OS & MOBO Creators

Current solid state drives need 'time to themselves' to do automatic garbage collection. Crucial recommends 6-8 hours (sounds like the hours when I'm getting some shut-eye) for the process to work.

Perhaps I don't understand what goes into operating system and motherboard design, but to me it makes sense for a user in 2014 to be able to select an overnight system setting that would provide power to any installed SSD's so they could optimize their performance, that would simultaneously deny power to other parts of the system like the processor and monitor that are power consumers and that might be spared wear-and-tear by the setting during the SSD optimization process.

Has this already been thought through and implemented or does it have lower priority than pretty, semi-transparent, pulsating tile icons? If it has, I have yet to find the search terms that point me to the solution.

Running the system with the BIOS setup screen burning into the monitor seems primitive to me.

thanks

Can you provide a link that talks about this?

Thanks, Ztruker,

Here's the link that prompted me to post;

My SSD used to be so much faster... What happened? - Crucial Community

I posted an alternative version of this question on the Crucial forum. Here's the brief reply I received:


"The whole forcing a downtime period for GC is a diagnostic step. Not a typical usage scenario.


If you have Windows 7 or later, trim will keep it in tip-top shape. If you have 8 or later, on top of that, 8 will regularly optimise the drives freespace on a schedule.


Even if you don't, natural down time (loo, food, tea breaks etc) are enough to keep the drive running fine."


I tried to post this earlier to explain that I'd misunderstood information from Crucial. Somehow it went astray and I had to go off to a meeting. I vaguely recall marking the thread as 'solved.' I see my option with this message is only to remark the thread as 'unsolved,' supporting this recollection. This is my first chance to get back to the forum to rectify the situation.

thanks again

Thanks for the update. That's more like how I thought things worked.

Hello, I was reading here that someone did not like the downward list of open items from the taskbar, but preferred a "pane" for each open Window. I have just the opposite problem. When I have "too many" Windows open in IE, it displays them as a list as shown in his picture, which I have...
