    Hi

    Just one question.
    I´m using parallels desktop 5 on my macbook pro with snowleopard.
    It works ok. I need it to connect to my company´s Active Directory and for running basic Windows programs like Outlook and office 2007.

    I have configured parallels to use 1 Gb of memory of my 4Gb on my Mac.

    My question is that when i shut my Parallel does it still use that 1Gb of the memory or does it leave all the memory (4Gb) to my Mac?

    Thanks

    It will release the memory back to your Mac once the virtual machine has shut down
