    Bottom button, left side is your recent apps. Hit it, find what you want closed by scrolling up/down. Whatever you want closed, swipe that frame to the side. It will be closed.

    I finally saw that but it still begs the question. Why can't you turn off an app from within the app? I finally found one (a very nice one) that does have "exit" as one of the menu options.

    Music Player - Android Apps on Google Play

    I bought the pro version (cheap enough at $1.99) after trying out the free version.

    It's Android thing. Most (not all) apps are suspended when they are not in the foreground. With the music app, it listens for Bluetooth headsets to give commands, for instance. Faster than navigating all the way back to where you left off. It doesn't hurt the battery for the app to remain in stasis. At least not as long as it's not syncing with cloud storage in the background.
    This used to annoy me as well, but I learned to ignore it over the years.
