    Anyone else having this problem:
    I open Facebook and come out of it by pressing the back button(obviously it should be closed now)
    But when I long press the back button again,I see Facebook in background. The app hasn't closed!!

    Yes, many apps don't close when we use the back button. (some time I find that battery saver, store and many)
    I read somewhere that in 8.1 that is the behavior.
    More knowledgeable members will hope clarify. In any case, often I hold the back button and use "X" to close any app open.
    Regards

    It should not affect the battery and no the back button no longer closes the app it suspends it so you can quickly access it in multitask mode.

    Suspended apps never affected battery consumption in wp, every modern os behaves like that, probably they aren't closed even if you press the x, just like in Windows 8

    So is just for multitasking?
    But of your check your battery sense, the app in use consumption is higher!!

    Yeah normal. That the new feature WP8.1 is bringing. Very soon all apps will make use of it. Right now some closes some suspend.

    Hi.
    When i tried to close Facebook app (not the beta app) it continued to run in the background (when i long pressed back button it was there) but my battery started to drain very quickly like 20% in a hour (i have lumia 1520) and when i closed the facebook completely it stops... Is there any solution to prevent this behavior?
