Double click home button. Apps tray opens up at the bottom.

 

Hold finger on any app in that tray until it starts to wobble and has an "x" in the corner. tap the x to close the app.

Thank you! Kudos! I did this on my iPod Touch 4G and I did not know that there was a way to end applications like this. I will see if this extends the time of my battery life, too, considering it's not even a year old and the battery seems to be depleting...

Thanks again!

The iPod would not be the primary source of power drain, but a lot of applications previously opened will cause a significant drain as the multitask bar is maintaining memory until the apps are force closed.

 

If you do not plan on resuming sessions with these applications, forcing the apps to close completely will save up memory and battery power.

 

Also: Disabling any features you are not going to be using for a time such as increasing the amount of time Mail, Calendar, Contacts are refreshed from automatic to hourly or manual will save power. And disabling Bluetooth will save power as well.

 

If you are in a "No Service" zone, disabling your phone will save power as well. Leaving it on "No Service" will drain it constantly as it searches all frequency bands periodically until it detects a signal.
