Question How to know what apps are running in background?

I recently purchased my first ipod which is an 8GB ipod touch and love it. I have a bunch of apps downloaded.

I thought all the apps closed when you turn it off by holding the power button and sliding it to shut down. When I turned it back on and it booted up I got a pop up shortly after that from a CNBC app.

I'd just like to have a way to completely end some apps if that is possible?

What you probably got was a push notification. If you don't want notifications then you can turn them off in Settings. The apps are getting shut down so they are not running in the background.
