I'm not sure why it's like that on your machine, but on my laptop right now, I have Winamp playing some tunes in the background, only using up 7MB RAM, and there's definitely not a lag when I move the Media Library, Playlist Editor etc.
And I never do watch those awards thingies, cause they're just scams imo.
Obviously, they didn't take into consideration that you have to pay for some of its services, and it's a resource hog. Also, when I played videos in it, I could never cut it down to a compact mode, like DivX Player can, and Winamp is.
So I don't use it for videos, and I'd never use it for music when I have Winamp and hell, even WMP.
