Force "App" to Close in Windows 8

In Window 8, applications do not need to be closed. When an app no longer has focus, it will then be put into a "Suspended" (freeze-dry) state!

When an application is in this state, it doesn't use up any CPU cycles, or memory. Pretty cool huh? 
So why would i need to know how to close the app?

The problem is that these apps still show up when you Alt + Tab through your open programs.

To close the app, you'll have to bring up the Task Manager 
and close the task from there.

(At the time of this post, there is not a keystroke to close the app with your keyboard)
