My daughter was using her XO on a long trip and typing pages of a story into the text editor activity. After a while she decided to rest, and she shutdown the computer as we did not have car adaptor to keep the XO plugged in. When she rebooted some time later, she observed that her changes from the last session were all lost.
I understand that if she had closed the activities first, before issuing a shutdown command, the activities would have prompted her to save her work. The system-wide shutdown should cause the various activities to run their shutdown processes, which would then prompt for saves and avoid lost work. I understand that sending a dbus message would accomplish this.
