synergy 2

one small thing i noticed recently is that i tend to power off the client machine using the host’s keyboard and mouse. (duh, if i had no physical keyboard or mouse directly connected to the client computer, how do i go to shut down after closing synergy?! aside from setting the power button to shutdown)

but when I do this, synergy terminates abruptly, and the host machine pops up with an error, wondering where the client went.

however, when i do it under Ubuntu, synergy terminates “cleanly” because the Linux shutdown procedure sends a SIGINT to all processes, allowing them to clean up after themselves. the client cleanly disconnects from the host, and the host knows that the process was closed. nothing to complain about!
