...but instead seeing a grayed out "Erase Free Space" in Disk Utility?
Note: With OS X Lion and an SSD drive, Secure Erase and Erasing Free Space are not available in Disk Utility. These options are not needed for an SSD drive because a standard erase makes it difficult to recover data from an SSD. For more security, consider turning on FileVault 2 encryption when you start using the SSD drive.
Also google "erasing space on ssd".
Bottom line, it is not something you want to do to a ssd.

yeah, i read this but we have no choice but to wipe the empty space & make the systems secure. thanks for the info.
btw, we've been secure wiping with 7 passes on a regular basis on ssds with no issues since 2009. if it messes up the apple ssds we'll have them replaced via apple care.
