I would like to control when user is allowed to close my application either trough Alt-F4 or normaly trough app.
I need to prevent closing of app while I initialise my program (conecting to TCP, loading data etc.).

Yes, you need to handle OnCloseQuery event on your main form and set the parameter CanClose to False. That ensures that your app will not die by ExitProcess(...) function (e.g. by pressing Alt+F4).
But your process still can be terminated by TerminateProcess(...) function (by any other process, e.g. Task Manager). There is no way to be 100% sure your app will not be colsed in this way.

Anyway, no matter the way your application is closed, all the resources will be freed (by Windows). Only if you need to do some specific cleanup there may be a problem
