    Default Multitasking Games

    When you have a game like speed forge or ExZeus open, and you switch away form it (back to the home screen or another app), what happens to the game?

    Does it automatically pause, close or does the game keep playing?

    No one? I am thinking about switching to Android from WebOS, and the auto pause feature was one nice thing that WebOS did when switching away from a game.

    I'm thinking about switching from the Pre, too, but how does Android handle switching between multiple running applications?

    I know that if you hold down the homebutton for a second, it pops up a little window that shows you the last 6 apps that you opened and lets you switch to them quickly. Android can multitask fine, it just doesn't do it nearly as cleanly as WebOS.
