shutdown vs restart

in macOS edited January 2014
I have an Ibook with 768 MB of ram. If I have a bunch of programs open the reponse on my Ibook slows dramatically. I'd get more RAM but am not sure another 256k will make that much difference. What I usually do is restart.

1) Why doesn't closing apps do the trick?

2) Is there any advantage shutting down and manually restarting has over a plain restart?
