i have a form that loads.  User enters ID and pass.  If the password is correct for that ID then it loads a MDI form and other child form open up after that.  well, if the user closes the program with the X in the top right the program is still running in the process list.  But if they close it with my close button, it exits like it should.

I have a datbase connection, is that what might be keeping my program running?  is there a way i can execute commands then the user closes with the X?
