Unhappy Turn off SSD? - 04-10-2009, 03:21 PM

In the power management options in XP there is the option to power down the hard drive after a specified time of inactivity. I noticed reading a Windows 7 thread that someone thought this was not a good thing to do on an SSD, as it wouldn't start up again.

Is this true, should I set my mini 9 so that the SSD never powers down, but it goes in sleep/hibernate?
