...and not have tasks running in the background like notes2.exe, which often result in unsuccessfull client restarts og db fixup if computer is restarted before tasks has closed down grazefully.
An idea is to have a prompt with a process bar/circle indicating the Notes Client is closing, like:
Notes Client shutting down, please wait .......
And this should not go away before all related programs/tasks has shut down grazefully, even if Notes Client Window closes.
You could even extend the nsd service to keep tags on these tasks/programs and make sure that the computer doesn't restart before these have stopped successfully and make sure you can't restart the Notes Client before either.

Do you think that the running of notes2.exe is a matter of not waiting long enough? I doubt that, because that task remains running, even when I wait for several minutes.

This was brought up in the 8.5.1 beta forum, and I can't click "Promote" hard enough!

This bothers me every time I shut down or restart my computer. I close notes, tell Windows to shut down or restart, and then it tried to force quit notes2.exe. I do not understand why they thought it'd be a good idea to make it appear as if notes has quit when it has not.
