Why does Geneious appear to be using lots of memory when I’m not running any analyses?

The memory usage shown in the Memory Usage bar will creep up and occasionally drop down automatically because of how Java works. You can force Geneious to free up unused memory by clicking on the Memory Usage bar - this will force a garbage collection and after a second or two you should see the memory usage drop down. If the indexer is running this will also use memory - see “Why is my indexer continually running?” in the Geneious Databases category.
