    Hey guys,
    I've been reading stuff about task manager apps and now i think it's safe to say that they do more harm to the phone than they do good. But how about the stock task manager on the vibrant? There are apps such as the music player that won't close unless you "end" them in the task manager. How do you manage to close those apps?

    It should be in the notification up top with an icon. Pull down the notification menu and you can go to the specific program and press on the 'pause' button, which kinda closes it.

    Took me a bit to grasp from my last phone that uses Windows Mobile.

    You don't need to close them. Android will close it for you when it needs more memory. Thats the whole point of multitasking. The app is using very little resources and battery power if its sitting idle in the background. So let it run and if Android needs to close the app it will do it on its own.

    Just tap your home key.

    To resume the app, tap its icon.
