    Let's say you have setup 4 spaces and you launch Safari and mail in space 1, itunes in space 2, pages, keynote and numbers in space 3 and let's leave space 4 empty.

    My question is what happens if you are in space 1, i.e. safari and mail and you are about to either shutdown or restart your mac for any reason. You would begin by closing safari and mail and then proceed with the shutdown. Now if you have forgotten that you had active apps in 2 other spaces, do you get a warning, what happens they just close and the computer shuts down?

    It switches you to the different spaces as it goes through quitting the applications. If there is one stopping it you may get switched to that space but i had to manually find the app in question. Once i saved and closed that the computer quit some other apps then shut down.

    I just did exact what you said. I didnt save a Pages document i just typed and set it to space 1

    I was watching porn in space 2 and saw that my fiance was coming so I went to shutdown. I was transferred back to space 1 to remind me that I didnt save my document.

    Hope that helps
