    How to close apps running in the Background

    Learned the procedure of closing apps thats running in the background hogging memory,it not only freed up memory it also made my iPad run much faster,unknown to me I had 7 apps running,this procedure is not in the owners guide.

    If you experience your iPad running a bit slow you probably have a ton of applications running in the background. The iPadís memory is limited, so in order to avoid performance issues you can close background applications by following the steps below.
    . To close background applications press the Home button twice and when the recently used apps bar appears, tap and hold down the app you wish to close.
    You will notice that after a second or two of holding down the icon, all the icons in the recently used apps bar will begin to move from side to side. You will also notice that a small red circle with a minus sign will appear on the top-left corner of the icon. Tap the red circle to close the background applications. Once youíve closed several applications tap on the Home button again and you will return to the Home Screen or App you were using. Your iPad should feel a little snappier.
    I found this on Gils webpage.

    Find it faster to use an app to regain memory. Xsysinfo is 99 cents. Worth it as I can't be bothered to hit those x's.

    Scott I have read through every page on the User Guide that came out in November and it aint in the guide,if you find it please give me chapter and verse so I can read it. Would be nice if Apple would identify the Guides by Version dates,Im looking at iOS 4.2 Software for November 2010.

    Why does not doing a full restart close out all the apps?

    Xsysinfo reclaims memory but it doesn't seem to remove apps from the task list. Have I missed something?

    BTW,it is the only place that I have been able to find the mAH rating of the battery. Apple quotes 25 watt hours without mentioning the voltage, which is apparently 3.75 volts.
