hi, im using a 12" pb w/ 1.25 gigs of ram...which one would think is plenty. but as soon as i open an ppt file with ~40 slides and scroll through them, activity monitor shows that powerpoint is using 600+ megs of ram!!! that is ridiculous. even with very few other apps running, opening up one ppt file causes my pb to page out like crazy. is there any way to stop powerpoint from caching every single thing to ram? i mean, its not like im afraid to use my ram, but just one file using up so much and paging out so much is totally a waste and unecessary. is this fixable or just another microsoftism? i should have just stuck with open office. thanks in advance.
