quiting and close stack message

Ok I have determined that intercepting the closeStackRequest or the shutDownRequest in the IDE does NOT prevent quitting the IDE. However, intercepting closeStackRequest DOES prevent a standalone from quitting if not passed! Intercepting closeStackRequest, while I am sure it would prevent closing the stack does NOT prevent the app from quitting. 

I hope that clears things up for everyone.
