I would like to caution all people that are currently using (older) SSD's and their ability to screw themselves over.
Wouldn't know if this is still a problem with newer SSD's / Firmwares but it's better to be safe than sorry.
SSD not seen as a drive anymore after resuming Windows (any version) from Hibernate/Sleep mode.
Drive will go into a Cold Panic Lock (term by OCZ) due to it, making the drive unuseable (forever).
Hibernate/Sleep mode settings on Windows OS.
POSSIBLE Fix(es) :
1: Make sure to turn off any hibernate/sleep/etc modes in the BIOS and in the Windows settings.
3: Incase of your SSD not being recognized after hibernate/sleep/etc mode, RMA the drive.
I have 2 SSD's (corsaid&ocz) myself, one has been RMA'd a month back to it landing into a cold panic lock.
Not really knowing what was going on, I reinstalled my Windows onto my second SSD.
Afin, everything went fine for a couple of weeks, until today.
With my 2nd SSD breaking down, I have been googling for the cause and possible fixes.
Sadly enough I'll have to wait until both drives are RMA'd, then to make sure it never happens again.
I hope this thread will caution some people and prevent their drives from breaking down.
