N is the disk number of your SSD as assigned by diskpart on the very left side.

If it list your SSD as disk 1 (for example) the command would be select disk 1

You're not an idiot, Mike. It's just something you're not familiar with. We all had to get over our fear of the command prompt and learn about it. I'm a long way from an expert, but I know a few commands. many I learned from WHS and Barefoot Kid. So, I know a few, but not very much.

My main system in the US is still running on a 60GB SSD. But I think this winter I will replace it with a 240GB model. I just hate crawling under the desk to install it.
Sleep keeps power to the RAM. A PC that is left sleeping is using RAM and power continuously.

Hibernate writes the RAM to the hard drive for convenient storage then powers off. When the power button is pressed immediately applies it to RAM for nearly instant resume.

Hybrid sleep continuously writes RAM to HD in case of power cut.

In XP and Vista Hibernate was buggy and less reliable. It's as reliable as a clock now.
Thanks Greg for the explanation. I guess I stick with sleep because I always shut the system off when not used for a longer period of time. I can wait the 20 seconds for the reboot.

Taken out of context, it may be confusing. But if you read the tutorial, the command sequence under 'Solution" (before 'Verification') makes it clear. I guess I will repeat the text in the parenthesis.

You are correct about command prompts but some (if not many) people have trouble remembering what they are, including me, especially when they are infrequently used. Programs (AA SSD being an example of one that can be used to check SSD alignment) that can perform the same functions can be easily found in one's Start Menu (or tool bar if one uses them) when needed.

Since my desktop machine runs 24/7, I do not normally use sleep or hibernate on it (with the exception of my UPS). My notebooks get used only when I'm on the road (or my desktop is down for whatever reason) and then that is usually only for brief periods so I don't bother with sleep or hibernate, especially since they boot so quickly (unlike my desktop, which takes a couple, three minutes or so because of the HBA card and the Marvel chips on the MOBO).
