    Computer Idling at 10GB memory usage after 1 week of no usage.

    Hello, I have a 2015 model ASUS ROG GL 511JW laptop with 16GB DDR3 RAM and 4GB GTX 960M GPU with Intel i7 4720HQ processor. I decided to leave it on for 1 week and did nothing on the device. I let it idle for a whole week and at the end, I found that the memory usage from day 1 @ 2GB usage goes up to 10 GB on day 7. Fun thing is that the memory usage listed under the processes bar of task manager does not add up to even 2GB! Is it possible that my computer is being mined off of? or what could be the possible reason of this error? I'vetried updating all my drivers, used the laptop without it's battery connected, minimized total monitors used. But I still use massive memory chucks until I restart the device.

    Extremely high idle memory usage

    Here is your first step:

    You wrote: "... my pc idling at 80 - 90% memory ..."

    1- Open Task Manager to the Processes tab and look at the Memory column.

    2- What process(es) are using so much of your memory?

    My Memory usage is unusually high when idle.

    My laptop memory usage improved a bit when I updated to Windows 10 ver 2004 (coming from 1909). My memory usage in 1909 when idle is around 70-80% and then when I updated to 2004 it became around 55-80%, I would like to know if any of you can give me tips
    or a step-by-step instruction on how to reduce memory usage. I will attach the images below. This was bothering me because I can't browse chrome normally (for ex: receiving "not responding errors" randomly.
