    That Windows button on the bottom of the phone usually works :)

    If you want to quit the round in the game and go back to the game menu, it's usually in the pause area. It depends on the game really :)

    im having this issue as well. I think what the OP was trying to ask is how do you back completely out of a game so that its no longer running in the background. If you hit the windows button it takes you to the home screen, but hitting back takes you directly back to the game after that. For all other apps hitting the back button a few times backs completely out of it and closes it, games dont work this way.

    The only thing ive found that works so far is to go to the main menu of the game, and then press back until you are at the home screen.

    Try the Back button... press it multiple times, and ensure it's not running by holding the Back button for 2 secs (which shows running programs/games)

    If this doesn't work, and it's an "addiction to games" related query, try uninstalling games ;)

    In many games, pressing the back button during game play will pause the game and pressing it again simply un-pauses.
    The solution is to go to your games' main menu first, then you the back button to leave/close the game.

    Just hit the Windows button. The app will then be tombstoned unless it is a GPS or Streaming Music app. At that point it should have no effect on battery.
