Poweramp kills my battery. How about a on off switch?

According to the 'task manager' on my phone (Motorola Electrify), Poweramp does not stop running simply by pressing the back button (home button does not completely end the app, either). I pressed the back button from within Poweramp and it seemingly closed completely, but after waiting 5 minutes I opened task manager and saw that Poweramp was still in the 'Running Programs' list. CPU usage was at 0% but RAM usage was at 13 MB. I wish that a true 'Exit' button were included so that i can keep other heavy apps (facebook and gmail) running without worrying about memory overload

Right, Android saves CPU cycles (thus battery) by caching app resources, bitmaps, etc. in memory. Until memory is required by some other app, these resources are cached in the process, but there are no running android components in it.

Thanks!
