Have a problem. I am running a Mac Pro with 16 GB RAM and OS X 10.7.3. My typical daily run is to log in fresh on Monday. Start up Mail and Safari as well as a VMWare Fusion Windows 7 session using 3 GB RAM. Over the course of the day I will also start up FireFox for the Mac and Word or Excel for the Mac. Sometimes I leave these running and sometimes I will do a CMD-Q to shut them down. At the end of the day, I will leave everything running and have the Mac do a screen saver over night. At the end of the week I'll shut all my VMware stuff down and actually log out of OS X. I noticed that the system was being a little sluggish and when I fired up Activity Monitor, noticed that the coreservicesd process was taking over 6 GB Real RAM and over 8 GB of Virtual RAM. I shut everything down and restarted the Mac and when I got everything going again, that process was only taking 60 MB of RAM. Over the time it's been up, that number has risen to 277 MB, but that's a far cry from 6 GB. Any ideas what might be causing this?
