    After playing certain games, the computer is laggy.


    After playing certain games, Kerbal Space Program and Transport Fever specifically, my laptop computer is very laggy and slow to respond. The problem only occurs after I exit the game. Opening File Explorer is rather quick but nothing is displayed. Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete I can choose to open the task manager, but only the frame appears. The CPU is not at high load neither during gameplay nor when the problem occurs. The only commonality between the two games as far as I know is that both is run via Steam.

    Neither game is very demanding on my system, and other, more hardware dependent games (also run via Steam) and simulators do not produce this error.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    Probably pagefile is filled up or it has hard time releasing RAM.
    Try to install CleanMem Free and run it after exiting the game.

    Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately running CleanMem did not solve the problem.

    The only solution I've found is to either restart the computer or log off/on my user.
