Default Questions about RAM and Prime95

I’ve some questions about the RAM use of Prime95. I’ve allocated 56 MB for daytime use, but the task-manager shows that only between 14 and 16 are normally used while the long LL-test is running. Is there a way to fix the maximum RAM the program needs during this phase? It will take about three weeks to finish the LL-test, so I would reduce the amount of allocated RAM until the P-1 tests need again all the RAM they can get. Does a larger exponent need more RAM or why are is the used RAM changing between 14 to 16 MB? I guess it should be the same kind of operation and so the same amount of resources needed for that. If Prime95 is needing less RAM then allocated is it using this smaller amount only or are the other MB still blocked?
