I (finally) decided to learn all about RAM and all the stuff with activity monitor today as my computer like to go slow sometimes. One thing I've noticed is that if I'm using Pages with other programs (like mathtype or mathematica, etc) if I click to a finder window, finder freezes. Sometimes for only a couple seconds, sometimes over a minute (usually I restart it before then). The problem just happened again, I was editing something in mathtype and then printed it in pages, and then finder froze. However, I noticed in activity monitor that a process called pictd was using a quarter of the 2GB of RAM that I have. This was just the real memory, it had over 1GB of virtual memory too. After I quit the process it freed up a large chunk of RAM and my computer it better again. Anyone have any idea what pictd is, does, and/or how to stop it?
