When closing the Android VM all Android applications are closed like powering off the virtual device.

Should the closing gesture on Android VM be boud to the "power off" button of the Android devices so that the usual Android context menu appears asking for confirmation?

This way will be more intuitive that closing Android VM closes all android applications.

Good idea. But I think improving the Android app behaviour in general (open new "windows" for each app) would be much better.

Android can have services run in the background. Closing the AlienDalvik service when you close all visible apps might not be what you want, as it will shut down the Android services as well. However, at the least I want an overview of those services, and the option to close them.

@Sailor I agree with you but it has been said it's not feasible, so I propose this as an alternative

Related: It would be nice to have a convenient way of closing only the Android app you're currently using. (Or is there one? I think now I need to go to the Android application switcher, switch to another app, then open the switcher again to close the first one.)
