Excuse me, still I have problem. Although I freed memory on the nodes as

   RealMemory=64259 AllocMem=1024 FreeMem=61882 Sockets=32 Boards=1
   RealMemory=120705 AllocMem=1024 FreeMem=115257 Sockets=32 Boards=1
   RealMemory=64259 AllocMem=26624 FreeMem=61795 Sockets=32 Boards=1
   RealMemory=64259 AllocMem=1024 FreeMem=51937 Sockets=10 Boards=1

still the job is in PD (resources).

$ squeue
             JOBID PARTITION     NAME     USER ST       TIME  NODES
               119       SEA    qe-fb  mahmood PD       0:00      4
$ cat slurm_qe.sh
#SBATCH --job-name=qe-fb
#SBATCH --output=my_fb.log
#SBATCH --partition=SEA
#SBATCH --account=fish
#SBATCH --mem=10GB
#SBATCH --nodes=4
#SBATCH --ntasks-per-node=5

mpirun -np $SLURM_NTASKS /share/apps/q-e-qe-6.5/bin/pw.x -in
