Since upgrading to Mountain Lion on the Macbook Air, everytime I wake it up from sleep it will come up with the message that application memory is full even though with terminal open it's clear that I have plenty over RAM available. It's annoying since I usually only have Chrome with a few tabs open. Thus, I have to force quit it and then open it again, and then there are no problems. Why does it keep saying to me that I have no ram when usually I have over 4gigs available? :confused:

I think you answered your own question maybe chrome has a memory leak ? Try leaving some taps open on safari and then waking it from sleep

By 10.8.3 or 10.8.4 is usually how long it takes to get most of the bugs out. That's why I always wait. I've never seen a reason to rush, especially when I've already got a stable system.

Not Chrome, not ML issue

I have a 2 Ghz i7, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD 2012 13" MBA and use Chrome all the time, often with 6-7 tabs going at once. I do not have this problem.

No I don't have adblock for Chrome. As I've said before, I've had terminal open as soon as I wake up and log in, and even though it says I have to quit applications, it is clear I have plenty of RAM available. Wtf...

so leave activity monitor open and see how much ram is being used.

can you post a screenshot of the message?
