Switching from app to app?

Hi!

When I am in an app and hit the "home" button to go back to the main home screen, does the app I was in really close or is it still running in the background? I just hit the home button for a second and move on to another app. Should I be doing something different? I don't want to waste battery life by having several apps running that I'm not using anymore. Does this make sense?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks and I'm sorry if this has been answered already!

I guess the official way to close an app is to hold the home button down until the app actually closes. This takes about 3-5 sec. I have never done this and have good battery life.
When all is said and done, I really don't think it matters that much.

It's said that with update 2.1 that Apps will be able to run in the background. Only time will tell.
