When I log into the GNOME Shell, my up and down volume keys work. When I login to Awesome GNOME, they don't. However, when I go into gnome-control-center to set them, the Keyboard section recognizes them just fine when I go to bind the keys to the volume actions.

It's not unusual for Arch to use more memory than Debian, possibly because it's doing something useful with the extra. You would need to compare Arch with Awesome and Openbox, or Debian with Awesome and Openbox.
