SSD cause power mgmt hibernation sleep issues?

Thats...pretty much it.  I have a SSD Intel I put in a long time ago and have recently started having issues with my laptop waking up from hibernation and sleep mode, and sometimes booting, I have to hit the power button a few times, or hold it in and power off.  The laptop also has a ton of video card issues, but I know they are specific to this Dell 1558 studio 15, i7 proc 8gb ram - it was a Costco deal.

What OS, this sound like an OS problem. I know this hybernate and sleep modes were problematic in Windows Vista.

Do you really need to enable hibernation/sleep?  SSD should improve boot times anyway.
How long does it take to start up from a full shutdown?

Its win7 ultimate 64 bit.  It wasnt an issue before, just started after a motherboard was swapped out, Dell has done this twice now.
Here is the problem though.  I did a full os reinstall (non-dell media) and had the same issues.  I just swapped back to the original OEM 72k drive and it does NOT seem to be an issue.  So seems to be OS or hard drive related, but I have reloaded OS, unless its specific to using the image that came with the laptop, but again, the laptop ran fine for several months after going SSD and win7 ultimate (came with win7pro).  

Yes, its nice to close my laptop and move around, then open it up and be right where I left off.

If it's only happened since MB swap-out have you reloaded the same level of BIOS that the old one was using?

I will double check, but I am pretty sure dell updated the bios to the latest (which it was on).  Also, with the OEM hdd I do not seem to be having the issues...

But the OEM HDD isn't an SSD.  
What you have said is changed is the motherboard, so that's the obvious place to start looking.
If the BIOS version is not the issue then I'd double check the BIOS HDD settings.

the only motherobard-related place to look would be your BIOS settings, since presumably they replaced the mobo with the same model.

Go into device manager, select view>>show hidden devices

Do you see any drivers with yellow exclamation points on them. If so, those are faulty drivers.

No clue...  I ran the OEM HDD and never had issues, then stopped using the laptop for about 3 weeks then started in again with the SSD (after running the SSD in another dell laptop) and things are working fine now.  No clue!
