To get to the place that shows you whats running, double click the home button. When you have done that you will see an extra set of apps.
Then hold down on one of the apps until it starts to wiggle.

I find that the start up takes alot of power so only shut off when you are not using it for extended periods of time.

cool knex13 (author)Wyattr551232012-09-26

True

but like I say if you are not using it for the night or day it can be a bit better

Maybe by 15 min extra power
