    Settings window keeps auto minimizing


    I've had my laptop for 3 years now, and all of a sudden the Settings window has started to minimize automatically. It remains open for anywhere between 0.5 to 3 seconds, and then auto minimizes. This only happens with the Settings window for some reason??

    This is a fairly new issue and I've never seen it before.

    :)

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
