    When do you guys close the Apps ?

    I was wondering when do you guys close your Apps on the PS4. I'm still getting used to the new system after one months and I often forget that a game is still running in the background. I'm not sure if I should close the App before putting the system on Standby and if a game running in the background could cause problems, if I forget it ?

    I also think that the "Close App" and "Delete App" are way too close and a few weeks ago while talking on the phone I made the mistake of deleting NBA 2k14 and had to re-download all 40 Gigs of it !

    I close a app once I'm done with it, keeping it open when its not needed is just wasting power and making system run hotter.

    I do as I did on the PS3, I close it when I'm finished with it. It's an old habit. I don't leave games running in the background on my PC either.

    I like my netflix running in the background when I am playing games as I like to switch a little between watching series and playing games. As long as I am using the ps4 I don't mind apps going in the background.

    Do multiple apps run at once like multi tasking on phones? I don't use Netflix so I don't know. But I typically close them when I'm done with them.

    I think it depends on the amount of ram each app needs. But yeah it is basically like that. I can let my netflix go in the background while playing cod but when switching to netflix it asks me to close cod. But I don't think I had the same issue when going over from Resogun

    I close a game now and then when I'm done with it and want to do something else, but If I want to put the PS4 in standby, I just do it and it closes the game anyway.

    I don't close anything. I made the assumption the OS was smart enough to handle that itself when needed.
    Other opinions are available.

    Exactly.
    It's like closing apps in your mobile phone or tablet. You just go to your home screen and don't care.

    Same in PS4. Why do those unnecessary steps?

    I often close mine when i'm done with them but, Im not sure the apps still run when you put the PS4 in standby mode i think thats just for downloadig/uploading things and charging the controller.
    Personally i'd never leave my PS4 in standby mode because i'd get scared it would get to hot overnight i'd just watch netflix while my app is downloading.
    Check out my twitch channel i often stream PS4 games and PC games. I also like to interact with the audience so if you want to see some epic gameplay check out my twitch. http://www.twitch.tv/skullcrusher1005

    I remember when I first got the ps4 I wasn't used to the fact that you could access the home screen while leaving the application running so I too would forget to close the apps and then would go to play another game and realise, oops :P That said after a while I just got into the habit of closing apps when I'm done with them. Makes things less confusing, but still was a cool feeling to think that the app was running so smoothly even though I had no idea it was even on.
