Battery consumption is caused by a few things.  One, check to see if you have bluetooth enabled.  If it is and is in discovery mode, it will be searching for bluetooth enabled devices all of the time which drains the battery.  Secondly, what is your signal strength?  Low signal means that the phone will amp up battery usage to try and stay connected to the carrier network.  Please let me know if this helps.

The only way that I am aware of to somewhat turn off the apps with one click would be to disable notifications from them.  You should be able to turn off notifications within your general            settings->notifications.  This would keep the device from recieving, then displaying the notifications, thus conserving battery.
