Notifications stay on for apps even when turned off?

    When I turn AIM off by closing it is multitasking bar, I still get banner notifications when I get AIM messages on my desktop. When I check the multitasking bar, AIM isnt there.

    I think this might be a reason why battery life is an issue for some. There are a lot of background apps continuing to be run even when they appear to not be running.

    If I reboot the phone, then it works but once AIM is loaded, it never turns off.

    Having to turn off notifications off on the app after closing the app is a PITA. Hope apple fixes this soon.

    The apps don't have to be running for push notifications to arrive. Push notifications wouldn't be the cause of battery problems.

    The only way to stop push notifications for an app is to remove the app or disable them in the notifications settings.

    Push notifications are separate from the app's current status. If you don't want to receive the push messages for AIM, sign off your screenname on the device before closing.

    But dont you want to leave push on for when you want to use the app? Would be annoying to have go into setting each time you wanted to run the app.

    I guess signing out after use is the only solution.

    That is bizarre
