Going there and adding up the "commit" memory I got 2147mb. Below that, In Use: 5411mb. Modified: 49mb. Standby: 6736. Free: 95.

I've actually checked there before and its the same thing when I have 10+gb in use, it only adds up to 2-3gb.

First you are getting the "message" because you arent allowing windows to manage the page file. Second windows will take about half of your free memory and put it into standby (as noted in your post it does)

So. 3 gigs for apps, 6.7 for standby=10 gigs. when you reboot all you do is force the standby to be rebuilt there by slowing it down.

It is perfectly natural normal and correct. Just get rid of the message and you should be fine
