Looks like it came back to "life" sometime within the last 90 minutes or so. Anything posted while it was down appears to have been lost into the ether.

I will stick to this version until I can find a proper solution.
I have been testing version 5.4.50 since the downgrade and later versions also have power management issues such as pm-suspend not working properly.
I have still not found where the issue lies BTW.

More ram usage

I just upgraded to the newest 32 bit kernel - 5.4.59.
I have used blackbox for years and gkrellm has always reported about 75 MB of ram used after boot.
Now it shows about 107 MB used. Also I never saw much swap usage, but now downloading youtube videos uses swap.
Is this the new normal for things?

Well if one drives faster, further, or carries more payload, it takes more fuel. Are you honestly concerned over 30MB RAM? I know Billy once stated nobody needs more than 1MB RAM, but that was roughly 40 years ago. People generally do more with computers these days, No?

It's really hard and rather expensive to find a single stick of RAM these days that has capacity less than 512MB (0.5GB) enough to handle that "bloat" almost 20 times over. 4GB, 8GB and 16GB single sticks are now commonplace and relatively cheap. I recall paying nearly $100 for a single stick of 2MB RAM back in the day. A few weeks ago I bought an 8GB stick for the same money.
