    HIPM+DIPM or DIPM for Intel X25-M SSD in ThinkPad X61s?


      Hi All,


      It's well known that Intel recommends that DIPM be enabled for Intel SSDs. Besides that, in its publication called "Designing energy efficient SATA devices" Intel states:

      Each of these (HIPM/DIPM) provides power savings by themselves; maximum power savings, however, are achieved when both are implemented together.


      Do I get it right that ACHI LPM setting HIPM+DIPM suits best for all of the above to be achieved with a ThinkPad X61s with an Intel X25-M G2 SSD inside? Or "DIPM be enabled" implies only DIPM, i.e. no HIPM?


      Many thanks in advance!
