Cmd-W when you're done will close the console window. :-)

Don't quite understand what `run in the background' really means since I don't use Windows. For me, with fairly recent Macs, the compiles go so fast I could care less about background processing; and I'm going through multiple compiles, with a possible run of bibtex/biber in between, for dealing with cross-references, Table of Contents, etc., using the pdflatexmk engine.

Good Luck,
