The last time I restarted it took 15 minutes for the server to fire up.
Here's the server log entries

The task manager said that the server was using 0 and 3% CPU, 150 MB
memory, 0.6 Mb disk; the control panel was using 50 Mb memory, between 0
and 1% of CPU
The cache is stored on the internal hard drive
What should I set the memory usage to? It's set at 6000-6500 Mb
Oh and by the way, thanks to everyone for all this help! It's heartening
to read that the other people don't suffer from the same problem, so
there should be a way of sorting it out.
