No. You simply keep a dirty-flag somewhere in your application.

'You have unsaved data. Are you sure you want to close down?' type message?
It will say that some applications aren't responding and that you might lose data if you close them anyway.

In WinForms you get a closing-event that is fired when Windows shuts down; the application should then shut down, but some applications show a dialog asking the user whether or not to shut down. Meaning Windows asks them to close, and they simply refuse and hang around.

Next question from Windows; do you want to terminate the applications that did not shut down?
