    Computer Idling at 10GB memory usage after 1 week of no usage.


    Hello, I have a 2015 model ASUS ROG GL 511JW laptop with 16GB DDR3 RAM and 4GB GTX 960M GPU with Intel i7 4720HQ processor. I decided to leave it on for 1 week and did nothing on the device. I let it idle for a whole week and at the end, I found that the memory usage from day 1 @ 2GB usage goes up to 10 GB on day 7. Fun thing is that the memory usage listed under the processes bar of task manager does not add up to even 2GB! Is it possible that my computer is being mined off of? or what could be the possible reason of this error? I'vetried updating all my drivers, used the laptop without it's battery connected, minimized total monitors used. But I still use massive memory chucks until I restart the device.

    Can you post a screenshot of the Performance->Memory tab as well?

    My computer got ridiculously show so I had to restart it. I am planning to use it this week. I'll attach the performance tab by around next Sunday

    Check Resource monitor > Memory tab
