Why do apps seem to run randomly when I'm not using them?

    I've noticed this before but haven't given it much thought, but I've noticed that it seems that certain apps are running in the background for no reason. I usually notice this by checking task killer. However, just now while using another app, I got a force-close error for ShopSavvy, which hasn't been used in several days.

    Why would something like this run randomly in the background? Is it part of an update check? Any ideas? Thanks.

    In on an answer i noticed that as well which has changed my battery life drastically by closing the programs.
