I have my / and /Home on a 120GB SSD and data and SWAP are on a mechanical Hard Drive. Will using Hibernation have a negative impact on my SSD or is it OK as SWAP is not on that drive?

No, it will not damage your SSD, it is OK like this.

Thank You. I was concerned that it might lead to a lot of rewrites on the SSD but I guess this in fact is done on SWAP which is on the mechanical drive –  Squiggles Nov 23 '12 at 0:23
