Ram at ideal is 5.9GB help

It looks like 5.6GB is cached, which is Windows holding stuff in the RAM so you can access it faster.

 

RAM usage only really matters if you run out. If you're doing something and it's 90% full then there's a problem but idle usage doesn't really matter.

Hey guys, I know there is some really smart pc guys in here, and i was wondering if you could help me.
My laptop have a large passive usage of my ram, compare to my desktop. (Ram is Hukomm...) as you can see below, it just seems so weird that is using that much ram doing almost nothing. I have tried windows support without any help. It jumped up as i took screen shots. All help is really welcome.

We don't know the config if the other setup, and cache part varies depending on the installed programs.

 

Also, idle means nothing. When speaking of RAM, RAM is used based on what is loaded. The more programs you have loaded, the more RAM it takes, even if you are not doing anything on the system. Running background programs and services also consumes RAM as they are programs at the of the day. Anything that wants to instruct things to your CPU to do things, needs to be on RAM.
