    I just installed 4GB of OCZ RAM on my MBP. every time i run parallels it takes up about 1GB of RAM when i shut it down the ram doesn't free up the Ram status stays as Active/inactive.

    Currently i'm only running safari and iTunes (each of which are using less than 100MB) and all 4GB of RAM is in use.

    Make this phenomenon happen again, open up terminal, type "top" and press enter. You should get something like:

    PID COMMAND %CPU TIME #TH #PRTS #MREGS RPRVT RSHRD RSIZE VSIZE

    etc.
