    I completely agree with NavyLCDR.

    Disable hibernation with powercfg -h off and just enjoy your ssd.

    With Windows 10, and any relatively new ssd drive all that voodoo just isnt necessary.
    You will likely replace your ssd with a larger and faster one long before you wear it out.

    That's the only tweak I do.
    Same here. I paid extra for the SSD, so I use it. I only hope to use it before it's too small to be worthwhile.

    Should i disable Hibernation for mine, my UPS battery backup software complains when i do that, normally i'm usually home if the power should act up, so i guess i could disable hibernation and still be fine, that is only tweak i still do for SSDs.

    Did turn off indexing as i never hardly use Search feature

    You would want to keep hibernation enabled for that, but I would suggest turning off Windows Fast Startup:
    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    I turned off mine with my UPS. I have my computer off if I am not actively using it. So, in the event of a power outage, I will save and shut down. I don't need it to hibernate to save my work.

    Yeah system on here is on 24 Hours, normally do network backups at night of other system in the household, maintenance on this PC itself, late night gaming til i fall asleep, occasional light video encoding of family videos from cell phone transfers--usually at night after i complete my other tasks

    Fast Startup believe already disabled in Windows here-it is

    But if does storm, or be like gonna be a power outage, then i will shutdown, but usually only shutdown for dust clean outs, or hardware upgrades, or if theres a big bad storm

    Disabling fast startup gave me slow reboots. Time is money, so I decided to enjoy BOTH fast startup AND my SSD, as one doesn't necessarily exclude the other, and, to me, personally, having to reboot Windows 10 from time to time is just another annoyance. I vastly prefer to use standby mode instead of powering down. Waking up from standby not only is one heck of a lot faster, but also it is preventing me from having to wait for all my desktop apps and background services to be restarted again. Not to mention the fact that things like scrollbar positions, selections, etc. are lost upon shutdown. Granted, these will also be lost in the possible event of a power outage. But then, I paid extra for my laptop's battery. So I use it.
