You have the required rights to system processes? Ref: EmptyWorkingSet Function

The handle must have the PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION and PROCESS_SET_INFORMATION access rights.

It is to be expected that memory usage of that processes is optimized at all times. If so, there is no need for some user to do what you want to do.

Even if you could, it would be most unrecommendable to do it.
