Welcome to the forums!

The thing about Android apps is that they can start themselves at *almost* any time. So while you can shut them down, apps that are designed to run in the background will almost always start back up. This is generally a good thing, but it does have some drawbacks.

Does that help answer your question?

You might want to search the forum for threads about Task Killers. Those threads will explain why apps run like that. Let me know if you cant find any or have questions though I would be glad to help.
