Properly closing a VB app

A VB 5.0 app I've developed has a quirk - sometimes when the app is closed with the 'X' in the title bar the app will appear to close but will still show as open in the task manager (Win95 and NT 4.0).  If I use the menu File->Exit option I coded into the app this doesn't seem to happen.  The app is small - about 3 forms (1 main and 2 forms called off the main one - all shown vbModal). Also - although the app is shown as open in the task manager I can't switch to it or alt-tab to activate it.  Any suggestions?

Use the QUERYUNLOAD Event:

  If UnloadMode = vbFormControlMenu Then

    'unload all of your forms
    'or call your own File-> Exit

  End If

I use the following in the QUERY_UNLOAD event:

DIM FRM AS FORM
FOR EACH FRM IN FORMS
    UNLOAD FRM
NEXT FRM
END

You should also shut down any timers, internet connections or other communications objects as well as closing any database workspaces, etc.
