Caffeine is a small program. Why is it taking up so much virtual memory or am I reading this wrong?
Edit: persists across application and os restarts
So apparently I was reading it wrong. According to Thomas Franzén ( lightheadsw )
I verified with ObjectAlloc and it seems like it is using only 8MB or so.
On my machine, it's using 30.2 MB, so you're right that yours is doing something out of the ordinary.
When you reboot, does it start at a lower number, or immediately jump to this level?
