Default Eh?

Is there any reason why AutoCAD would go from taking up usually around 80mb of RAM one day, and the next day take up more than 500mb of ram? What's the deal with this, I can't even work because all my computer's doing is swapping non-stop. My harddrive is going to die soon if this continues...

K, I'm not %100 sure but I THINK autocad runs much like SQL where it will take as much memory that is available and then releases back to the o/s to allocated when needed. Now... not completely sure about this one.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Then why would it go from 80mb usage yesterday, to 520mb today? Wouldn't it always be a lot of it did that?
