blackberry-scroll down-Close is just awkward

1. Am I correct these are still in the background after I push the red phone (hang-up) key?
2. Am I correct they are sucking down memory while running?
3. Is there a universal, easy way to kill an application? Not that it's difficult, but to remember to press blackberry key, scroll down to the bottom, and push close seems to be a lot of keystrokes. And to push blackberry key, scroll down to application switcher, select the applications one by one, then blackberry-scroll down-Close is just awkward.
, but it's the only sure-fire way, short of a battery pull.
And yes, in all likelyhood most apps are "sucking down" your memory while running. BB's have a rather limited amount of application memory available.
