My T60 IBM keeps the start menu on disk instead of in memory after I open a number of programs and don't use the start button for some time.
So When I try to access, perhaps, "Connections", it takes time for the machine to respond. One problem that exacerbates this is that the "All Programs" link is directly above the "Start" button when the window opens. As I move the cursor, it generally moves over the "All programs" switch and locks there until the computer gets the info back into memory.
So, once it is in memory, I then have to move the cursor OUT of the "All Programs" area and then move it to the section I actually want.
I find this extremely annoying.
Can anyone help?
Other suggestions besides mine are welcome.
EDIT: I just had a thought. Is this related to the fact that I have the task bar hidden when not in use?
EDIT: Okay, just got another idea. Can I stop the start menu from going to the swap file?
