Now are we absolutely positive that RAM is cleared when the computer is turned off?

Actually on a related subject, how do these USB memory stick things work? Do they also have a battery?

Yes simple answer, the data stored in RAM is lost when the computer is turned off.

some ROM type memory blocks are based on chemical processes as well as physical. The actual chemical composition of memory cells changes and remains changed even after the flow of electric current is cut off. Lots to explain, why don't you satisfy your reading pleasure by starting here: http://www.drix.be/ram.htm

i dont think the computer class people are trying to trick you, therefore the usual answer is yes - ram is lost when you turn off the computer. they're probably just trying to get you to distinguish between the volatile and involatile memory. i bet some geeky computer geniouses could prove it wrong though.
