In Reply to: How to close APPS running in background? by msnewbie

Personal preference: Double tap the home button to access the multi-task bar, scroll through the list of apps and select the apps you'd like to terminate by holding down on the icons until small minus symbols are revealed... Do this for each of the apps you want to close in the background. <-- I believe this will suit your needs best.

As an unfavorable alternative: This might be more of a hassle than you'd like, but have you considered rebooting the device after heavy use sessions to terminate unwanted apps in the background?
