    Hi, does anyone know if leaving the cards open all day causes a battery drain? Especially for the internet and GPS related apps.

    Yes. Any card that is left open is using memory, and also cpu time in order to stay active/paused.

    Obviously some apps take much more power and thus drain battery faster than others.

    What I want to know though (goes along with this), is whether apps that stay active when minimized take up less cpu time? I've noticed that some apps take a couple seconds to complete the transition to full screen (not counting games).

    Quality apps will not be a big drain. Palm has given developers the tool set to minimize resource consumption.
