When i close Discord on my pc, both school laptop and my own desktop pc, the application closes, but when i open Task Manager i find it still running in the background and taking up CPU. Having to manually go into the task manager and click End Task every time i wanna close Discord is a bit of a nuisance, so is there any way i can fix this?

What you're experiencing is normal behaviour.

To close Discord when you've finished with it, right-click the Discord icon in the Notification Area ( small icons bottom-right near the clock) and choose "Exit".

Commendable
You can disable the Minimize (close) to Tray setting, to close Discord completely on exit.

If you go to Discord -> "User Settings"-> scroll down to "Windows Settings" -> disable "Minimize to Tray"

Screenshot

This should close Discord completely, instead of minimizing the app to the tray when clicking X to close the program
