My newly build desktop as seen in my sig uses about 12% of my memory on average. I just bought and upgraded a laptop, also in sig and it's using 30 to 34 % of memory! And that's a clean install of Vista with the major non important services disabled. What's the deal???

Nope. my laptop uses about 12% of RAM while idle. Laptops don't use anymore memory unless you have power management options enabled.

You mean like, sleep on lid close? Should I just manually put it in standby?
