A few hours ago i upgraded my iMacs RAM to 12GBs from the standard 4, and now the majority of it keeps going inactive for no apparent reason (well any i can find).


I just want to know why this happens and is there anything i can do to stop this? Also can i run programs when the RAM is reading a lot of inactive memory?


This is what my RAM is reading currently;


Can i get any support for this problem please, really confused how OS Lion works for managing memory





iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
