Something is definately not right... Following the instructions as I posted them should only take a few seconds! Are you formatting rather than Secure erase???????????

It did mention something about the SSD being in a frozen state before I chose to proceed. I've just stopped it. I figured it should not take this long as a platter HDD finishes in less time than this!
Would you recommend me using your method? I have the thinkwiki page that your link opened up and printed it. I also have a couple of Linux disks. Those command lines look linux. Would they work in a Ubuntu 10.04 Terminal???
I just went back and read your instructions at Page 1. I'm going to boot up the partedmagic cd again and look for that black box. Is that something like terminal in ubuntu?

Okay I'm showing frozen when I run the command in LXTerminal. I've tried quickly pulling and pushing the SSD while OS is running.
I do have a question here. Does it matter if I use the OS in mem or whether I use the LiveCD??? I'm not sure if it works like an Ubuntu disk where the OS runs off the CD.
I've tried putting the laptop to sleep with my Fn+F3 command and it won't sleep.
Any suggestions? I also can't get my wireless to work so I can respond quickly while on partedmagic. I'll try hooking it up directly via ethernet cable to the router. I've been using a Blackberry to type messages so it's very inconvenient that way

Boot parted magic. Select mempory. When it is done booting, unplug the SSD cable for 3 seconds whilt the OS is still running. Plug it back in. It is now unfrozen and can be secure erased. No internet or wireless needed.

I used a LiveSD card of Ubuntu 10.04 to boot up. I then ran in Ubuntu terminal. It showed "Frozen." I remembered to try sleep. This wouldn't work on my Thinkpad T400 with PartedMagic. I tried it with the LiveSD Ubuntu card and my laptop went to sleep mode. I then hit the Fn button and it came back on.
I immediately went into Terminal and ran the hdparm command again. This time it showed "Not Frozen." I went ahead with the ATA Secure Erse wiki documentation and followed through with the commands. I used the Eins temp password and I think I succeeded. One thing that confused me was a line that mentioned "not supported: enhanced erase."
I wanted to attach the results of my Terminal (command line) session but my doc file exceeds the 19.5kb limit! I'll get back when I figure what to include and leave out.

Now for some things we can do a number on it to avoid unnecessary writes to the SSD. Windows 7 is on the event logs I've seen. If you have problems, I would not change the logging options. If not, then stop, we can write that much, frankly, just an engineer will (not to mention the basic event logs).
For / admin tools, and choose to start Performance Monitor. Fold data collector sets. Click Start Event Trace Sessions.
With the exception of the following newspapers required (Application, Security, System, Security Essentials), we can not prevent it from starting. Allows To do this, right click on each individual with the State (except those listed above) and select Properties. Click the Session Trace tab. Clear the Enabled. Click OK. Repeat for the other (including ready-boat).
