I have a question regarding background apps...

First of all, I have a Samsung Epic 4G Touch running on Starburst Rom...

If I disable an app that runs in the background since when I boot the phone up, lets say market or ap mobile, what actually happens? I mean, does it really close the app? The reason I ask is because I was using Optimize Toolbox (great app) until they changed the language to chinese, and that would disable some startup apps and save battery life. I noticed that after not using the program I was getting horrible bat life compared to when I had it, so i downloaded a couple of alternatives to disable startup apps and wipe cache... So, will disableing apps that run in the background also help me get greater batterylife? or will they get closed and automatically start up while the phone is running?
