    I also never leave any cards open while I am not using the phone. The most I ever have open is a browser window and pandora and maybe email. I always close all windows before I put my phone away.

    I was like that when I first got my phone, but now I find myself leaving notes, messaging, and e-mail open 24/7. I know there is more power being drained from leaving them open but I don't notice it.

    Yeh I don't really notice any difference in battery life w/ or w/o the cards open. It just depends for me whether or not I leave cards open. Just if I plan on coming back to it or not. And I normally open as many cards as I need (think 7 is most I actually use while open).

    The great thing about the pre is I can decide what, when, how and even where I use most of these cards, so its still kinda cool to me to let the pre multitak with me....

    No idea. I feel like I need to. Compulsion.

    I had PalmOS so I also was used to it quitting out on me.

    I use a number of graphic/memory intensive applications on my desktop at work, and usually have multiple files open in each app, so I normally close those that I'm not actively using to keep from running low on memory. So, I understand the compulsion part, had to un-train myself from doing it on my computer.

    But unless they're apps that are doing something you don't want them doing when you're not on your Pre (like a GPS app constantly checking your location) there's really not much reason to close them, and it's just extra time finding and opening them again when you need to.

    Occasionally I will forget and leave 1 or 2 open, I will notice the battery drain and close them. My son however (17), he will have myspace, facebook and texting all at once. He has 2 batteries and uses them!

    Yeah I don't eave cards open either. I guess it's the OCD in me coming out
    But especially when I put my phone down or put it away I always clear the cards first
