st: Memory usage in Stata 11 and 12

I found 1 MB of memory laying around at home and upgraded my laptop
Lenovo T400 from 2 GB to 3 GB RAM. However, this did not have any
effect on the available memory for Stata11. I could adress 1200 MB
both before and after the upgrade. I am using Windows XP 32-bit.

Is there any utility for windows that can help me find a way to make
more room for Stata? I know that I can use msconfig to block out some
processes, but it is difficult to know what processes that is not
necessary. I would rather have a utility that can decide where the
processes are loaded. Another possibility would be to load Stata early
during the boot process. Is that possible?

I have also had the experience that Stata had less memory available
after upgrading from Stata 9 to Stata 11. I wonder if Stata 12 is more
efficient in memory usage? If I upgrade will I have more, or less,
memory available for data, or does Stata still need uninterrupetd
memoryblocks?
