Can someone with more experience shed some light on why CS5 doesn't release the RAM it was using when I close the program? I don't have a problem with it using as much RAM as necessary when I have it open. I noticed tonight that my computer is still super slow after I close Photoshop. I look in the task manager and see that it still has over 2 GB being used by "photoshop.exe" even though I closed it over 5 minutes ago. Is it normal for it to not release the RAM afterwards? If not, what settings do I need to tweak?
My Google search only yielded people complaining about all the RAM it uses while open.
