Ask to save before closing

I think it would be a good improvement to add a dialog that asks the user if they would like to save before exiting. The reason is that sometimes my mouse accuracy is off a little bit and instead of hitting the Fullscreen toggle switch on the User Preferences tool bar I hit the close program button. This immediately closes the program. I am running the Windows version.

The same happens to me often in the past ( till today, not only my mouse but my eyes are a little bit old...) .
What I do:
I have in the preferences ( over the top Border in the Info-Window) the automatic save switched on for every 3 Minutes ...

Now I am on the secure side!
the maximum I can lose are the changes of the last 3 minutes...

And as the other help: I switch wiith Hot keys to Full screen. ( and back) :

CTRL-[up]/[dn]

edit:
( see the online-documentation link on left side
( HOT Keys - Arrow Keys)
