iOS4 (iPhone Operating System 4) took a huge step forward when it introduced Multitasking. Most iPad owners don't know what it is and probably don't care, but they probably also don't realize that many apps will stay open and run in the background when the iPad is on due to multitasking, and the iPad remembers the apps that were running even when you turn it off and turn it back on. I would go so far as to say that the iPad hibernates when you turn it off. So the same apps will open and run in the background every time you turn off the iPad and turn it back on (I know because I just tried it on my iPad 3 with iOS 5.1.1). So every time you tap an icon on the screen the app opens, you see it and use it, and when done you press the home key, and you don't realize it is still running in the background. It's not like a PC or Mac computer that forgets what you were doing when you turn it off and turn it on (except if you turn it off with hibernation). The best way to "turn off" the apps running in the background is to follow the tips at the links above.
Thank you so much for this info. I've owned my IPad for over a year and didn't know a lot of this stuff!

I have an iPad2 and an iPod Touch, and I am now loving my Samsung Galaxy 2 7 inch pad. So nice not to be locked into iTunes world.
However, even though the Samsung accepts the iPad Logitech and Belkin pro mic (XLR) adapter, it does NOT record as well. Aside from that, it does all that I need and is (on sale) $179.95 new.
