It's normal.

If you really want it to use less, remove some of your RAM. That way, Windows can't possibly use it.

If you leave it in the laptop, Windows will use it. RAM is meant to be used.

I have 3GB of RAM on this system and Windows uses 1.2GBs plus caching. I wish it would use more. No need to save RAM for a rainy day.
