For the past month, every time a launch system preferences it takes several seconds to load. Then, when I go into desktop/screensaver it takes a long time to load. So I open activity monitor, and when system preferences is open, its using 22mb but as soon as I open desktop/screensaver, it shoots up to 735mb and goes to 45% on the user usage. I hope this makes sense. Please help. I'm not sure if this is normal or if my ram is going bad. I don't think it is, but I know you guys can probably help. I'm running 10.6.3 Thanks.
