What is usually done is that every onPress handler closes all other open items before it opens its own.
I had to do a similar thing, and used a onMouseDown action that checkt fot a (non)hit on the clip in question...
Well isn't onRelease something like offPress, isn't it?
But perhaps Button.trackAsMenu and/or MovieClip.trackAsMenu are what you are looking for? I've never really used them much, just in a tutorial or three a very long time ago.
For your clicking on the background to make the menu disapear, you can make an invisible button behind the menus that is as big as your webpage or viewing area and when you click this, then it will take you to frame 10 or which ever you have allocated to display your site before the menus were visible. Make sure this "big" button is below any of your hot linked items and above any of the stagnant graphics and it should work for what your trying to accomplish.
My example is : www.nevrland.net click on a menu and then click anywhere behind the menus and they disapear.
