Windows 7 will not use standby memory when it is needed so I would like to shut it off.
I have 8 GB Ram, I play a game like Age of Empires 2 (I have played others with nothing else installed)and it stutters because standby has all the Ram and won't release it, no other programs or apps installed. I turn the computer on and off intill standby has relesed the ram and the game plays fine. If standby memory says it has 900 MB Ram I can play any of my games(skyrim on ultra high) or apps, if standby says it has 6 to 7 GB Ram I try to unzip a 20 MB zip file and have to wait 15 to 20 min. I don't know what determines how much ram is in standby but i've played a game for 5 hours and when I was done standby had only 1 GB Ram and i've turn my computer on after a clean windows 7 install with nothing installed but windows and opened up resource manager and whached the numbers on standby memory go up like a rolling counter
I did change my page file from windows automatic setting of 12,0000 GB to custom setting of 3000 MB top amount, and it seemed to help slow standby from taking ram.
System is AMD duo core3.5 \ 8GB Ram \ ATI 500mb gpu \ windows7 all updates plus Microsoft security essentiels(norton did same thing)so its not antivirus and as I said I did a clean install with windows and trid alot of different programs installed by them selfs and all did the same. If Ram is in standby it is not usable
Can you please tell me how to shut it off
