I know someone else stated that they didn't encounter any warrenty voiding stickers during the procress of reaching the RAM or SSD to upgrade it. But of course that is nothing official.

Could you post the read/write speed of your SSD?

I had a 128GB OCZ Nocti mSata sitting in my drawer, so, learning that there is an empty PCIe slot, I installed it.
Opening the case was simple enough, as was installing the drive.
All worked well except for one major annoyance: the Yoga now takes over 2 minutes to shut down or sleep! It is driving me crazy.
I tried refreshing and resetting Windows. I fiddeled with the BIOS and power managment, but came up empty.

My friend just installed a 256gb(240) mSata drive from crucial in his second mSata slot and 8gb ram also from Crucial. Both are compatible and work great. To the previous poster having trouble with the mSata drive? Did you replace the drive that came with the laptop or simply add the new drive to the second slot? I wouldn't think using it as a storage drive would affect OS functions like sleep...

So technically we cant upgrade the RAM or add a 2nd SSD without voiding the warranty? ugh...
That will not void your warranty. If you break a bunch of stuff during the upgrade, your warranty may not cover that, but you're not going to void your warranty entirely.
Also, someone else asked for confirmation: the SATA port is 3Gb/s.

I have added the OCZ in the empty slot in addition to the Samsung SSD pre-bundled with the system.
I got real sick of the wait last night, so I decided to remove the SSD. So I took the machine apart again, and just before I yank out the SSD, I gave it a try. And what do you know, all works nicely.
So instead, I kept it, and re-assembled the machine. All hummed beautifully. until a few hours later, when the problem re-manifested itself.
Is it something in the hardware? could it be something that is dislocated and/or loose?
All I know is that I'm going crazy over this.

I figured it out!
(I can't believe I had to re-install Windows twice and dissamble the machine for this!)
The problem is that I have an "empty" micro-SD to SD card adaptor in the card reader slot. When I remove it, everything works nicely, when I insert it with a Micro-SD card, all works nicely, when I insert it alone, the system becomes sluggish and sleep/shutdown takes over 2 minutes.
The adaptor is Genuine Samsung and had never had any troubles with it before. It is weird.
