So, when I use the switch off button within the Waze menu, does Waze cease to operate even though it's still active in the recent apps list?
Apps in the multi-task list are not necessarily running. All apps recently used, running or not, are listed there. Waze happens to keep running when the home button is tapped. Most applications are not written this way and cease operation and receive no CPU time nor memory allocation once they exit. The applications in the multitask list are, by and large, not using CPU or memory.
When you exit Waze using the "Switch off" button in the main menu or use one of the various voice commands to accomplish the same, it properly exits and is allowed to finish upload of any pending drive data before terminating.
Search the 'net and you'll find many articles about people's misunderstanding of this list.
