Well, the title says it all. Is this a common problem? What could cause and fix this?
I'm on Win8x64 and I use R2014b. When I quit MATLAB, either by pressing the cross or typing
in the command window, all open MATLAB windows close after a few seconds, but the process remains in the Task Manager. It takes a lot of memory too: the usual amount MATLAB uses (usually over 500MB). When I launch MATLAB again, I get a second MATLAB.exe and the first one remains unchanged. I can kill the process by force closing it in the Task Manager, but I'm not comfortable with doing that often and the extra clicks are just annoying.
