    I have noticed a couple times while using my laptop that my ram and memory usage goes up while doing nothing. I go and check processes and find that store, calc, movies & tv, calendar and mail are all running even though I haven't opened them up. Are they updating in the background? I usually will just end them, but if there is a reason they are running than I'll just let them be.

    The store will run to update other apps. The other apps you see running run in order to give you notifications or are being updated. Just let them finish their job. If there are no notices they'll go away. They will only do their work when you're not working so they won't interfere with anything.

    I have stopped the store from running in the background and haven't seen the behavior since. I prefer to update on my own.
