Default Closing programs, better way?

Please Login to Remove!

Since the memory issue is handled best by making sure you close out of programs, I find myself constantly trackballing to the bottom of the menu to get to "close." I haven't found a key that does it. "C" gets there sometimes but in some menus, it takes multiple hits. So I'm wondering if there is a faster way to close than trackballing to the bottom each time. thanks.

Most apps can be closed with the escape key (right of trackball.) A few apps require Menu >Close.
