answer to your question there is an "app" built in called active applications..
on about the 2nd or third screen
move it to home page
it tells you how many are running.
click on it and kill all with one press of the button..
relatively painless process but saves lots of time..
I kick myself for not migrating a couple of years ago... but suspect if i did i would have HAD TO GET an iphone...
now i am just waiting for ICECREAM SANDwich to run the skyrocket...
should make lots of things easier....
this works wonderfully..but
1. any widget added to your home screen is a constant running process, too many of these and you will see wake locks and battery issues
2. the answer to the question..to properly exit an app (most anyway) press the back button until you reach the home screen.
