    You could go into manage apps, running, and kill the apps you don't need.

    Isn't there a task manager on gb?? Use it of so.

    @ acoustic warning... lol

    I discovered this little gem while jamming to my favorite tunes..

    Pop up reads (something like.. ) "You appear to have your volume @ full blast for a prolonged time, this can cause hearing damage! Reducing volume for you, you're welcome.."

    Uh.. gee, thanks google.. I guess? Hope you don't start limiting my drinking next!?

    New to android phone, have a Droid Razr-M, ICS wondering what is the best way to stop programs in the running apps section. When I open an app or say the camera, and close it I see it later on in the running app area taking up memory. How do these programs close without manually stopping them? I've removed them from the "recent apps" window (right button) list but they still show up in running apps. Is there a way to close these down to save memory and ultimately battery life. How to remove these running in the background after using them automatically without having to go into settings, apps, running, and force the stop manually.

    They are using very little if any of the phones resources, in the event the memory gets low enough to affect the phones performance then the operating system will shut down what needs to be closed. If you close them manually many may reopen, which will actually use more resources than leaving them alone.

    If it bothers you to see them running there are "task killers" in the Play Store that will automatically shut down running apps, but again, many may restart on their own, and you may actually see a decrease in battery life, I doubt performance is going to be affected at all, regardless of what you do, your phone is plenty powerful.

    Lastly, if the app is showing as running, when you do open it, it will be quicker to respond.
    Enjoy your new phone.
