That's without a game running.
- Swapping doesn't matter if you're using an SSD, which you should be. I should have been explicit about that advice.
- Right, and look you're only filling up 58% of your memory. If 15 applications are only slightly over halfway your RAM, that proves my point more than it disputes it.

That's the first I've ever heard of that. It's sounds like the kind of thing that could leave even power users in utter confusion as to what just happened.
AFAIK the option only exists for keyboards that lack a physical Caps Lock key (which the Lenovo keyboard does-- yay!). But flipping it to "off" doesn't work with Lenovo's keyboard because they at some point went out of their way to break this standard Windows feature. So my normal typing cadence on that keyboard is:
key key key-- oops double-tapped shift by accident-- backspace backspace key key-- oops I hit delete instead of backspace because backspace is in the WRONG SPOT-- actual backspace* 4 key key key NOW IT'S IN CAPS AGAIN! FUCK YOU LENOVO!-- throws laptop out window
Lenovo does not make good laptops, is really the point here. I don't know; maybe if you never learned how to type and hunt-and-peck, it's the perfect laptop for you.
