    Hi!
    Since I Update to windows 10 the fan stay on all the time and around 40% of memory is used all the time, even if I'm not using my surface.
    How can I solve this?

    Your CPU usage is high.

    It should be 0-3% CPU on idle

    Mem use is ok. System uses it for cache and stuff. Unused memory = wasted memory.

    Sort by cpu so we can see what's using it. You're not showing us much with that screenshot.

    As you can see the CPU is quiet... but the memory usage is still high.

    System (aka ntoskrnl.exe) is using too much RAM in your case. On my 4 GB RAM/128GB storage SP3, ntoskrnl.exe is only using 100MB of RAM and I consume about 1.7 GB of RAM with 15 Tabs on IE, mail app, and playing iheartradio app in the background.
