I'll try and hopefully keep this easy.
Pressing and holding back will display all open apps, you can slide and tap to switch apps.
Once you are in an app, press the back button to exit it. If a exit dialog or menu appears, exit using that option, otherwise once it is back on the home screen (live tiles) it has exited.
If you are in an application and press the windows key to get back to the tiles, that application will remain open in the background.
Hope this helps.

Anyway to stop the new "resume from start"?
Example, I open Facebook, play some games, send an email. Any amount of time later, I click Facebook it goes to where it left off. This new feature I don't think I'll get used to when I get my new phone. Can this be disabled in the settings? What is it really called?

- Swipe over to Applicatons
- Tap on Background Tasks
That contains the list of apps that are allowed to run in the background. They will either say 'allowed' which means they can run, but currently are not, 'blocked' which means they can not run in the background, or 'running' which obviously means they are currently running. Nokia Drive will show up as running if you have been using it for example...

I have noticed when I leave some app, either Star Wars Angry Birds or Audible, and go back to the start screen.. that if I hold the speakers up to my ears, I can hear a high pitched buzz. So, something at least has the "sound card" ( chip? ) whatever still engaged. So, THAT, at least is using up my battery.
I can even hear the buzz while Angry Birds is on mute.

I have a Nokia 920 and it would seem to me that there are 3 ways in which users control the applications they run...
1) Pressing the back button in all cases appears to terminate the application or at least stop it operating.
2) Presssing the home button while in an app seems to sometimes keep the app runnin in the background but other times seems to cause it to stop working.
3) Pressing and holding the back button until the "taskmanager" starts. When doing this the application always appears to continue running if another application is selected.
An example of an app that appears to operate in these 3 ways - TubeBox. Pressing the home key when in the app causes the video/audio to stop and when going into the app you are back at the start. Pressing and holding the back button and then going to another app keeps thing running in the background. Also doing a long press on the back button then pressing the home key still seems to keep apps running in the background.
