I noticed lately that mostly in browsers page loading ect was slow was blaming it on internet
but got to looking had high swap usage.
I adjusted dont use bluetooth so killed that applet and a few others which brought mem usage down.
Now things seem ok working much better and swapping much less seems to have been a breakover point.
Using Mate wonder if anyone has had this issue limited on this laptop cant upgrade ram.
Those little applets can sure use memory sometimes. (Bluetooth biggest offender)
