Default Apps running in background

Does anyone know how to make certain apps stop running in the background? For instance, I have Google Plus running in the background, Amazon Kindle, contacts, Google contact sync, and I did turn off notifications in the app settings for each of these apps but they still run in the background. I don't want to freeze them I just want them to stop running in the background when I'm not using them.
