Sleep is okay.

This may not be your porblem though with 128GB of space.
But do they say to turn it off to save space on the SSD - knowing that it seems the hiberfile.sys file can't be moved to another disk - or because they know it'll fry the SSD? Because mine is sure acting as if it's fried.

To save space mostly. Early SSD's were only 40-60GB so space was at a premium on them.

It won't damage the SSD.

I can't really answer that question, having no experience with or knowledge about Kingston SSDs. See what you can find on Kingston's website under support/downloads for your specific model.

If there is a firmware update available, you might be able to read which issues are fixed with it and whether you recognize any as applying to your specific situation.

That will help you decide whether to try the firmware upgrade, although it's usually always a good idea.

I just looked and saw that Kingston has a firmware update for my specifc model that's supposed to clear up malfunctions, and I got all excited... but on looking closer I saw that the label on my drive indicates that it's already been updated at the factory.

So now, going on what you said about how it's not normal to have boot problems after 3 months (by the way, every time I do a full reboot I also get reports of file errors and Diskchk kicks in - I didn't mention that), I'm assuming the disk is defective and sending it back while I still can. I'll post further developments here.

Thanks again for your excellent help

Glad to hear you can get it replaced under warranty - do let us know how the new drive works out. Good luck
