My torch has gone from lasting 16 hours to lasting less than 4 hours, almost overnight... My guess is that one or more battery-hungry apps are doing this to me. How do i find what is running in the background and cancel it? thanks

Welcome to the Forums, jpainter!
To see what apps are running, press and hold the BB menu button (to the left of the trackpad) for a second or two. This will bring up the "application switcher," which shows you all the apps currently running on your device. There are several that "have" to be running at all times, including the phone, browser, main messages folder, home screen and BB Messenger. Everything else can be selected and closed, meaning scroll to any other app that's running, select it and make sure it's closed and stopped running. Use the BB menu button in the app to select "exit" or "close." You'll be able to tell if it's still running by following the first sentence of this paragraph.
Please post back if you have questions.
