Default Battery draining quickly

I check my battery in settings and it is saying Android os 71% causing the drain. There are quite a few apps running in the background that I don't need running like facebook, words with friends and a couple game apps among others. I've changed the settings in facebook too but it still is running. How can I keep these apps from running? I do not need notifications for them. I usually just open them up when I want to check for things.

Well that sucks. I had my phone charged at 100 ...8 in the morning and it was down to 60 by about 10 or 11 with medium usage.

just keep spare batteries charged and swap as needed. I have four batteries and swap every 6 hours or so.

I don't use Facebook so unsure but does it not have a disable sync option or disable notifications?
