    The battery on my Samsung GS2 runs down surprisingly quickly.
    I see in Home=>Settings=>About phone=>Battery usage
    that a number of applications that I have been using
    but are not using at present, eg Skype,
    are listed as contributing significantly to battery usage.

    How exactly can I stop an application
    without removing it?

    If you want to automate, use application like Tasker and stop the service or process.

    If you are updated to ICS, the steps are a little different....

    You bring up the 'Recents' panel by long pressing the Home button. From the list of recent application thumbnails, swipe left/right on the application that you want to remove from the background. This will stop the application without removing it.
