10.6: Completely Disable Virtual Memory in Snow Leopard
Authored by: OneCatFamily on Jun 08, '11 02:17:53PM

I've noted that after about three hours of work on my 2006 MBP with only 2Gb of RAM, swap has been reactivated, so I gather the system kind of protects itself against a potential shortage of memory by reinstating virtual memory after a while. That, or putting your Mac to sleep reactivates VM somehow... I did that, but I don't know if VM came back after my MBP woke up, or if it was already back before it even went to sleep...
