Extremly high (8+GB) memory usage during idle in windows 8.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So in installed windows 8 the other day and i notice that during idle the task manager says 8 or 9 or 11 GB of ram of my 16GB is being used. But i look at processes and services and nothing is taking up that much. Could this be a driver with a memory leak?? see pic #3 for this crazyness

Yes, non-paged pool is usually about drivers.

Sometimes it stays at 2gb ram usage. but once it goes up to a high amount of usage, it doesn't go down untill i restart. It doesn't really effect performance but its strange indeed.
