Exiting calibre - linux - no system tray?

This _has_ to be the stupidest newbie question ever, but I can't figure out how to exit calibre cleanly.
I couldn't find an exit button or an exit option from the menu, so I figured I hust had to just close the window. At one time this gave me a message saying that calibre would keep running in the system tray, and that I should choose exit from the system tray if I really wanted to quit (or something like that).

Thing is, I'm running linux with a minimalistic window manager and I don't have a system tray. After closing the window and looking at the processes I see a bunch of processes:
/bin/sh /usr/bin/calibre
/opt/calibre/loader
/bin/sh /opt/calibre/calibre-parallel
/opt/calibre/loader
/bin/sh /opt/calibre/calibre-parallel
opt/calibre/loader

killing one of the /opt/calibre/loader processes seems to get me rid of these, but that doesn't feel right... Is there a better way to do it?

Go into config and turn of "Minimize to system tray" option. This way closing the window will close the app.

Thanks for the answers!

Maybe I'll look into trayer when I get my new laptop, but I'm not sure I would have much use for it...

I use a minimal window management system based on a tiling windows manager I wrote myself, and I find trayer useful for a couple of apps like gajim and quassel
