I don't think any messages are sent at all when the Home key is pressed.
Ralph may be thinking of the "shutdown" message which is sent when you
issue the "quit" command, but that doesn't happen when the Home key is
pressed because the app doesn't quit, it keeps running in the background
until Android needs the memory.
The app should save its state on every significant change because you
never know when the OS will shut it down.
