    Welcome to the forum

    You could hit "home" and that would not be a big problem, or you could hit the back button. Most of the browsers also have a menu (usually several horizontal bars either at the bottom or top right of the screen), that will provide an options to exit.

    Welcome to the forum!

    If you are not going to use your tablet for a while, you can turn it off by long pressing the lock button for about 3 seconds and choose shut down.

    Another optoin, toggle your WiFi off when not in use as this will save battery. Many users installed the AutoAirplaneMode by DON. It puts the tab in airplane mode when it is sleeping to save battery and works quite well.
