I've checked with top before.  It's RAM for me.  I didn't know stata did
that.  How do I get it to do it, or does it do it automatically?

Stata doesn't do it, its a feature of the operating system. *NIX
systems have a portion of the hard-drive partioned as 'swap' space
which will be used as memory if RAM is maxed out.  Windows does
something similar as well.
