It takes almost 4 minutes to start a game (Dota2) and another 3 to start a match after accepting a match. this always happens only on my first match. The subsequent matches load relatively quickly, but when i quit the game. My entire system is slowed down for some reason and it stays this way till I restart the computer. My computer configuration is enough to play the game at basic graphics.

Can you run sudo apt-get install htop. Then you can open htop in your terminal just before you open steam. Then look at what process are using your memory and CPU. Is all your memory used? Are you using swap? All that sort of stuff. Also can you recreate the problem with another steam game? –  don.joey Apr 18 at 8:03
    
unfortunately i don't own any other game in steam. No, all the memory is not being used. And by the way what is swap? –  user247473 Apr 18 at 8:21
