Default What services to turn off (or on) for a SSD drive in Windows 7 ??

I just finished up a build for my step-dad. I'm hoping it will keep him happy for the next 5-7 years.
I have the Kingston 40gb SSD Vnow (the intel one).
I turned off, indexing (except it still shows that it wants to index the start folder, I can't figure that one out.), turned off defrag, hibernate. Haven't made up my mind about pre-fetch.
Some say it speeds up loading but uses the hard drive more. any other opinions out there?

the drive is aligned properly.


Is there anything I'm missing? Kingston doesn't seem to have any utilities for the drive. I'm hoping trim will be enabled later for it.
