NetMeeting Consumes Memory in Sleep Mode

ID: Q247438

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional


When you put NetMeeting into sleep mode on a Microsoft Windows 2000-based computer, it does not release the memory it consumes. When you view NetMeeting's memory usage in Performance Monitor, you see that it does not decrease when NetMeeting is put into sleep mode.


When you start NetMeeting, the system loads the multimedia drivers that NetMeeting uses to accept incoming calls. When you put NetMeeting into sleep mode, those drivers remain in memory, consuming substantial resources.


This behavior is by design.



On a Microsoft Windows 2000-based computer:

  1. Start Performance Monitor, and then note the amount of memory the system is using.
  2. Start NetMeeting.
  3. Quit NetMeeting.

NOTE: NetMeeting returns in sleep mode.

  1. Switch to Performance Monitor, and then check the difference in memory usage.
