    I have trim enabled. Do I have to log off my computer periodically in order to make sure Garbage Collection does it's job?

    According to a Newegg site video linked to below, you can use an Administrative Command Prompt and type the following command to find out if TRIM is turned on or not.

    fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

    If DisableDeleteNoftify=0 then trim is turned on. I will have to state, I ran it on my system, without an SSD, and it shows 0.

    Newegg.com - SSD, Solid State Drives

    about 2/3 the way through.

    I know Trim is on on my computer. Since posting this question I've been able to ascertain that Trim tells Garbage Collection when a block can be rewritten to.
