When you close an application (Inkscape for instance), it will receive a WM_CLOSE[^] message form the OS and as response to it it will ask you to save (or not to save) the unsaved documents...
When you close the whole OS the messages to send is WM_QUERYENDSESSION[^] and WM_ENDSESSION[^].
If those messages are not handled the application will lost data...
So it is entirely up to the application...
However you may replace the standard shutdown process with your own, where before any other messages you send a WM_CLOSE to each (top-level) window...If the window returns 0 (means, it handled the message), you continue to the next, but if not you can pop a message to alert the user and bring the window to focus...If you got to the end of the list, you can shut down the OS...
Skipper: We'll fix it.
Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this?
Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
