Apps running in background

I got a nexus 7 for Christmas and so far its been great and this forum has been very helpful. I have the advanced task killer app downloaded and when I open it and close all the apps I can go back into it a few minutes later without opening any other apps and there's a list of apps that have opened and are running. Is there a way to stop this?

The Android system operates this way naturally. It works on the principal that a mb of RAM that is empty uses roughly the same amount of power as a mb of RAM that is full. This is what the use of task killers on any newer version of Android is so debated amongst users. I wouldn't be concerned unless the apps that come back up consume all or most of the memory available (you should always have at least roughly 50mb available).
