We have had a similar situation.  The user is in the middle of a program
and closes the session without signing off (probably because they are
waiting on a locked record).  The system expends lots of resources trying
to reconnect until we ultimately kill the disconnected job.  It doesn't
happen very often but I'd rather it not happen at all.  I was going to
approach our situation from the angle of trying to find out what was
causing the lock in the first place so that they wouldn't have to close the
window.  I also want to avoid teaching them to do a SYSREQ-2 to kill the

I doubt if there's anything that you can do to keep them from clicking on
the X to close the window since that's a Window's function.  Even if you
could they could still launch the Task Manager and kill it that way.  The
extreme example would be what my 2-year old does--just push the power
button and shut the PC off without exiting or shutting down anything.
Who's problem is it now?  IBM?  Microsoft?  The PC manufacturer?  The power

We have had problems with users using the 'X' buttom in the upper right
corner of the windows screen to close the AS400 sessions.  This causes
problems.  Not only error message, joblogs, etc; but I can't find the
real problems with devices because they are buried in tons of other
data.   It has only gotten worse over time.

Does anyone have a way to stop the use of the 'X' except at the signon
display.  I really think IBM should be handling this since it is a
client access session.

Any help is appreciated
