from what i can grasp by looking at the forums, standby mem is a block of the mem that is unavail unless the program for which the mem is in standby is being used. is this correct? if it is, then why is it included in the 'available memory' sum? shouldn't it be listed separately as something like, 'kinda available memory'?

also, i have 4G of ram w/ win 7 64bit and almost 2G is being used for standby. when i don't have any programs i have prompted to run actually running this only leaves my w/ like 400M of free mem. if i run you-tube and another site it goes down to like 50M. does this sound right?
