Hello Kintomaniac,

With 2GB of RAM, I would say that would probably be about right.

I have 8GB, and I'm sitting at 20% on average.

That sounds about right to me, with 2Gb RAM.

Yep, that's normal. Mines the same usage as Brinks with 8GB.

On my Vista machine with 1.5GB Ram it hovers around the 40-45% mark.

About 30% with 4GB here.

My machine with 512MB runs at about 65% - 70%

Sounds like you have a leaky plugin.
