are they slowing or eating memory !
can I close them
or is that how all BB has!
As already stated, these 5 applications will always show running. The only issue you may run into with memory leaks / lag would be with the Browser. This will only happen if you leave the browser running on a page that renders/refreshes constantly, such as a weather site. Make sure to close out of it by pressing the Menu Key and selecting Close, or press and HOLD the escape (back) key.
Other than that, you shouldn't run into any issues with these 5 applications.
