The lags/freezes are NOT caused by aggressive APM settings.
An aggressive APM (<128) would still let the drive to wake up in about 3 seconds. What about the 30 second or total freezings reported by several users ?
People tried playing with APM and no solution
The problem is elsewhere, probably a bad hardware/firmware combination. Don't blame it always on software.

I checked my bios and found no option for APM I'm kinda at a loss at this point my games are completely unplayable with this lag it rediculous and I have no options because this drive was put in by the Geek Squad so I can't return it, I'm going to bring it in to them anyway problem is I have important stuff I need to finish on here first before I can be without it for that amount of time, if it wasn't the fact that laptop harddrives are so expensive I'd buy one and do it myself, but Geek Squad will still do iit for free for a couple more months.

What version of Windows do you have ? If it is 7, try the APM settings under windows (not in bios, since there isn't such setting on a standard laptop).

I'm not a 100% sure but
control panel -> hardware and sound -> power options -> change advance settings -> hard disk -> turn off hard disk after : never

Yea I already did that still didn't work I used that program and used this power option what else is left? Why is it when I run HDTune's benchmark tool my computer runs fine? Its like when its actually doing something it works. Maybe I should defrag again? Don't remember when I did it last. I know the SSD part of it has issues with defrags or that it just needs to relearn stuff.

is it possible there is something wrong with the SSD part of the drive and not the harddrive itself? How would one even check that?
Edit: I just realized my defrag options are set to degrag every weds at 1:00 am. Could this possibly be the reason for my problems? I read on other parts of the forms that Defraging wipes the SSD memory and thus needs to relearn everything that I typically do. I wonder if its just not having enough time to figure it out? My last defrag was Dec 1. Its been 13 days since then how long does it typically take to adjust itself?
