    Default Newbie question on stopping applications

    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?

    Press the home button, Task manager,active applications. Then hit exit beside the application.

    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.
