Hi Gary, I was told at the apple store when I got my first desktop iMac that shutting it down once/week (overnight) was a good idea. Not sure now if that was good advice. It was repeated over the years on apple support too...just curious. Thanks!
Kathy: Restart if you like, as long as you let it sleep instead of leaving it off. But unless you are having trouble it isn't needed.
Hi Gary. My MBP is from late 2014 with Retina Display. I bought directly from Apple. My RAM is 16 GB's, but now it's operating somewhere between 2-8 GB's (according the Memory Diag app). If I have to may apps open it drops below 1 GB. Any ideas? Maybe I'll get a new MBP.😇
Russ: Not sure what you are referring to. In general, let your Mac worry about the memory situation and you worry about whatever it is you are actually doing.
