which apps are "suspended"?

by timaging / July 24, 2008 1:07 AM PDT

I'm trying to get this batter life problem nailed down. I shut off 3G, turned off push, and shut off the location thing, but even in standby mode I'm still draining pretty fast. I haven't shut off WiFi, but I do have the button to ask to join networks turned off, and on my 1st gen iPhone, I could hold a charge for up to 4 days easy.

now, I still get about a day even in standby mode. So, I'm wondering if any of my other applications are ones that work as suspended applications. I read in another thread that suspended applications, like google maps require to be shut down by holding the home button for 8 seconds.

Is there a list or a way to find out what applications use this suspended technology so I can quit out of them properly?
