performa 6360 mem allocation

My new 6360, 16 megs physical ram, only addresses all memory upon startup. After running one or more apps, then quitting all, I constantly find that I have lost 2-5 megs in the "about this macintosh" dialog box. IE, my largest block available is smaller although I have no apps running. Why? And how to fix?

Typicall there is *some* memory fragmentation when you load and quit apps (memory can be fragmented just like a disk drive_. Typically the oinly way to get 100% of your RAM back is to restart.

Using virtual memory will help, and installing RAM Doubler will help even more.
