The user is not doing anything wrong, Google is.
This is because of how Android handles closing applications. When you close an app, it disappears from your desktop, but the application keeps running. This eventually results in running out of memory and wake-up interupts from suspend while in fact you don't have any app open (at least, that's what you think).
This is broken by design. Blame Google.
The community has developed tools to list all your running apps with the option to kill them individually. So there are ways to work around this.
