every webpage that is opened will consume memory and cpu as you say.
It doesn't matter if you scroll up or down to get things out of view.
The only way to prevent consumption is :
- closing the webpage (....)
- disable javascript (javascript is being run locally)
- diable the automatic download / execution of images and active-X

There's a lot you can prevent from being executed automatically.
But, it also prevents a lot of viewing comfort.
