macos – Force Quit Applications appears when memory is not full

Spread the love

I have a Macbook 14″ ( M1 Pro ) with 16GB of RAM.

However, the Force Quit Applications windows pop up when I surpass the ~10GB of RAM utilization.

Even if I close some applications, this window keeps popping up after some seconds. The system becomes unusable until I restart it. This mostly happens after 16-20h of uptime.

Attached is the picture of htop output and the popup. I did not close any application, I just waited for the popup to appear.
