    Win10 running "out of memory" when the computer sleeps.


    After installing Windows 10 a while back I began seeing a "Your computer is low on memory" error... this error only appears after the computer goes to sleep and is woken up, and never happened on Windows 7 or 8.1. Nothing has changed except for the os

    The os is on 250gb ssd with 164gb of free space. I have a second ssd that I install software to (Autodesk, Adobe, etc) and it has over 150 gb of free space. There is a 1tb hd for general storage which has over 500gb of free space

    When the "Your computer is low on memory" error occurs windows says it needs to shut down programs to save memory, this causes any program that's open to stop responding and crash. Also, when this happens one of my monitors typically freezes up (usually monitor 2) and the default playback device for my sounds (monitor 3) gets changed and I can't hear any audio until I restart the computer.

    After a restart everything seems fine.

    None of this happened until I installed windows 10... any ideas?
