And why is it sucking up 100% of my RAM and disk usage? Oddly, not CPU.
I initially thought the culprit was the system and compressed memory, but after it happened a few more times, I noticed that that was only a symptom of the IM Controller. The whole thing is seemingly random. It'll spike when playing a game, or using Skype, but also, on occasion when just browsing the web. So what is this controller? Why is it slowing down my computer? And is it even necessary?

I would also like to know what this Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost.exe is. Is it required? can it be installed? It's running on a Thinkpad E520 and becomes unresponsive and makes the system lock up several times a day according to Windows 10 reliablility history.
Any insight would be appreciated.
Here is another related post, which has been seen and commented on by Lenovo.

Just a note to help others with this.
I was helping a friend set up their new Ideapad 300 running Windows 10 and found that this Lenovo.Modern.ImController.exe process was using about 75% of CPU continually. It continued to do this for over an hour. After looking into other options found here in the Lenovo forums and in other places on the web - eg. remove files in the c:\windows\softwaredistribution\download (see https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkCentre-A-E-M-S-Series/Lenovo-Modern-ImController-PluginHost-exe-15... - I decided to just do a restart.
After the restart the problem went away... at least for now :-)
Note I just did a shutdown/reboot - I didn't remove any files in the download directory.

The closest topic I found to actually diagnose and solve your problem is this one: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/tp02_en/thread-id/73625/page/1
Please follow the thread there and maybe help that Lenovo Employee with some feedback.
The reason might be because of what is termed a `memory leak` inside the Audio component.
