    I have noticed that many apps, even after you close them in the multitasking dock, continue to run it seems. I have experienced this with aim, Facebook chat, and words with friends. I will close aim and/or the Facebook chat applications, yet still receive messages from them as if I were still using the app. Only if I log out before closing the apps will i not receive messages; which leads me to believe that they are still running, but with me just logged out perhaps. So my questions are: Why doesn't closing them in the multitasking dock close the app from running? Does that mean the multitasking dock is a gimmick that really doesn't work half the time? Is there any setting I am missing to change this?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Those are push notifications. Not messages from the apps.
    You will receive those wether the app is closed or not. Even after a restart.
    Go to settings, notifications to disable them if you want.
