    When I go into the terminal (command prompt) and finish what I am doing, I type exit and get a message

    [process completed]

    but the terminal window stays open. Is there a command I can issue to both exit the terminal mode and close the window?

    Preferences > Settings > Shell. There's a pulldown of options for when the shell closes.

    do you mean system settings?

    I don't see an option for shell anywhere

    can you be more specific?

    hmmm

    It doesn't save my settings when I go in there and change the preferences.

    something I am missing?

    Not that I know of...it should work. FWIW, I'm on Leopard.

    One thought, do you have the default theme selected when you are changing the exit options? Your default theme will be marked "default" below the theme name.
