    After up grading to 4.2, I found that after pressing the home button to "quit", the app is still "running" on the task bar. I realize this is part of the new multi-tasking features, but sometimes I just want to really close the app and *not* have it just hibernate.

    Now i have to close it twice. :confused:

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    I might be wrong but I don't think there is a way to close it, other than pressing the home button.

    home button doesn't really close it.. It just "minimizes" it now.

    Double click home button, multitasking bar opens, hold icon in multitasking bar for a second or two until it starts to "wiggle" and you'll see a little minus badge in top left corner.

    Now, you just click that "minus" and app is "really closed".

    On the other hand, i think that's really not necessary, since multitasking in iOS is really not like classical multitasking as seen on other devices and it's handled by OS in such matter that it doesn't effect OS response time.

    Ignore it and in a few days you will have forgotten about it.
    If an app needs the ram the os will quietly close it in the background but the actual ram invovled is tiny.

    Still amazed at what they can do with the limited ram on the machine.

    BeIIerophon is correct. Much like the Android, apps that are in the background aren't consuming resources unless they are specifically designed to do so. If iOS decides it needs to reclaim any memory, the app you have gone the longest without using will be "flushed." Yes, that is the technical term for freeing memory from cache.

    High Brightness of the screen can drain your battery faster than multiple apps open.

    Tap and hold until the icons jiggle, then drag it to the edge of the screen. The page should change. Then let go!
