  1. How much Standby Memory is considered to be abnormal?


    Long story short, my laptop has been stuttering in-game ever since I updated it to the KB4535996 update. I have rerolled to older version, repasted the CPU and the GPU and updated all drivers, yet nothing prevails. But then I found out that an usually large standby cache can cause stuttering in games too.

    My laptop only has 8GB, but standby cache can sometimes take up to ~2GB. So is that abnormal? I need to know whether to clean the cache or not.

    Releasing Standby memory

    This is the first I have heard of any issues with Standby list memory causing issues outside of games.
    I know there were a lot of reports around 1809 of games having issues where the standby list didn't release memory and games would stutter. There are a few programs that can clear up this issue. I have used both and they do work but I only used it for games, never noticed any issues in windows applications.
    ISLC (Intelligent standby list cleaner) by Wagnarsoft and Processlasso by Bitsum can clear the standby list automatically.

    RamMap is working for me, when you click empty standby list you then close it, and it does its thing.

    SuperFetch & Standby Memory Not Working Properly?

    Yeah, with 1809 it is better, but in my case, I still have issues playing Battlefield 1 & 4 when the standby list is full.
    That is why I made this little app.
    I'm open to feedback and suggestions if you or anyone try it.*Wink
