I recently bought a MacBook (white, 2.4gHz) and upgraded its RAM to 4gb (KTA-MB667K2/4G). When I check the status of memory-usage at powerup, it's generally what you'd expect.....endless RAMs to be filled with dozens of programs. But after a few hours of standard browsing, using transmission, mail and perhaps a word processor, Activity monitor sketches a dreadful picture (see attachment). I'm using more then half my memory and somehow I need 40 gb of VM. When I manually add up the actual RAM used by each program, I never get to 2gb. And I'm listing all processes. What's going on? Which part of my mac is gobbling up all those sweet RAMs?
