    Hey there people, I have a computer with 32GB of RAM. No matter what I am doing, it idles at 4GB or more RAM usage. I have gone down my process list and there is nothing eating up a lot of RAM. It is set to show all processes. I don't understand why it uses so much. It's not a problem, I have memory to spare I was just wondering why.

    4Gb of 32Gb isn't a lot! That RAM isn't actually "in use" it is on standby ready to be used at a moment's notice.
