I turn off my laptop ever other day, so I have not seen this problem.
However as a check I did set up the cron job I sent on a previous email.
So far the only items that have been running constantly are Evolution
and Firefox.  Firefox is the one that has been growing the most, over
300%, then Xorg, just about 20%.  The other items, Evolution and regular
background stuff, have not seen any significant memory usage increase.
