The minimum amount of memory to get P-1 assignments is 300MB. If you cannot allow this much, then your machine is not suitable for this kind of work.

If you are willing to allow 300MB or more, but the amount the machine is actually takes is more than you want, then you can reduce this by changing the setting under Options/CPU.

People who do P-1 on small numbers do not recieve these as assignments. Rather they trawl the database for exponents which have either never had P-1 done, or done to inadiquate bounds. This kind of work is best left to the experts.
