Is there any specific reason Kernel_Task seems to think he owns the place? What gives? It's like I turn my MacBook on and he's all like "oh hai! Ize just a system task! 50mb of memory? That's cool that's cool" Then only 2 hours later he's all like "Nah man, I just needed some more room see, it's like 120mb ain't dat much, k?" I know that OS X handles ram real good and all, by freeing memory when it's required for higher-priority tasks, but I also know that it takes a bit more time to clear that memory AND re-allocate it... So, is this a memory leak? And while I'm at it what about iChat Agent and Colloquy that are battling out to be RAM champ? OH, and I haz 2gb installed at the moment.
