Cleanmem takes 30 seconds or so to free memory

Hi Shane
I only use the minimonitor and my version is 1.7 and when I turn it on and right click
and choose clean memeory it takes 30 or 40 seconds to lower the ram use,is this normal?

I never noticed this before-after I get online should I use it right away? I have been waiting
10 minutes or so before I use it-does it matter?I read the change log and it says it takes 1 second to do its job then closes-confused (as usual) <grin>

Cleanmem calls Windows to do it right away and then closes. Windows takes over from there.

Mine happens instantly and over a few sec I still see memory drop as Windows cleans things up :wink:
