Default Close notifications with Back key

Hi,
I have Beanstalk, of Android 4.4.2. Unlike previous versions, after showing the notifications window by dragging down the status bar, I cannot close that window (and return to the home screen) using the Back button. I can only drag it back up or otherwise click the Home button. Is there a setting to allow closing it using the Back button (as all my previous ROMs allowed)?
Thanks,
Shlomy

Back to kill is probably not implemented yet. (normally this option in the development options).
When pressing the back button to minimize the app it should be working. If not reboot a few times and see if it helps, otherwise reflash.

What does "Back to kill" mean? The Back button works fine in all other cases; the only case where I expect it to do something and it doesn't is when the notifications are shown on the screen after pulling down the status bar.
I hoped it would be somewhat configurable to map the back button to the same operation of dragging the notifications back up to the status bar (which is what happened with the previous ROMs I used).

Back to kill is holding the back button to close the app in stead of minimizing it.
In your case it's something that doesn't work (yet). So the only thing you can do is, fix it yourself or wait for the next build and hope it's fixed.
