I have a laptop with Elementary OS 0.5 with SSD drive. Every time it boots it executes fstream. Can anybody point me which service needs to be disabled to prevent this. I want to conserve as much battery as possible.


Given the silence let me respond to myself. To disable fstrim execute this:

sudo systemctl stop fstrim.timer
sudo systemctl disable fstrim.timer
sudo systemctl stop fstrim.service
sudo systemctl disable fstrim.service
