If you don't want an app to start (that you don't use), go to settings/applications/ and check "disable".

Some may be starting because you have syncing set within the app, turn it off.

Some just plain run all the time... leave them alone, you're not wasting much battery (unless it's something like Jango taht you didn't exit correctly). Android is designed to have stuff run and not really be "on".
