The RAM consumed by the OS and other processes is already included in the 2.2 I'm telling... my app enters to work when the RAM is already consumed in ~600 MB in the 3- 32 bit machines ... in the 64 bit machine was exactly the same only that it started a little bit higher because it has windows 7... so should I understand that there is nothing I can do for my app to use up more RAM?

It is not just the machine. If your python is compiled as 32bit then it will be limited to 2GB.
To use more you have to use a 64 bit python on a 64 bit machine.
