    If I use my laptop for more than 1 day...say I put it to sleep or whatever, and then the next day just start it back up, vista run slower. I feel it's because of the memory in usage. So I restart vista and everything runs smooth again.

    Is there a way to empty this memory without rebooting? What trick do you guys use?
    I tried googling and found this
    http://www.windowsvistaplace.com/clear-windows-memory-without-restarting/windows-vista/

    but after doing exactly that...it didnt work and my computer was still slow. I read the comments and im not the only one...the method shown above doesnt do anything!

    So how can I clear my memory without having to reboot all the time? :helpme

    This will clear any application memory when it's closed, or woke up from stand by condition.

    That's not how memory works. Having the memory full is actually a good thing if there's stuff in there that's not used. When an application wants more memory it just replaces the parts that were last used. Some applications like firefox hog the memory and they won't release it but then you should just close those apps and memory should be released. And not having enough memory probably doesn't make it slower unless you're seeing a lot of disk activity. I suspect it's just all that crap you have running...
