Originally I started out with firmware 2.02. I did notice a freeze, so I disabled LPM. That worked.
Then as I was done benchmarking OCZ released firmware 2.06. I installed it and enabled LPM again. No more freezing. I redid some of the benchmarks and found no performance difference.
I redid the battery life benchmark with fw 2.06. Battery life improved. In the chart is battery life with fw 2.06 and LPM enabled.
