Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You might try the following:

Create a timer: timQuit.
It will be reset on any windows event..
if nothing comes in the timer will expire and close your app

  Protected Overrides Sub DefWndProc(ByRef m As System.Windows.Forms.Message)

    End Sub

 Private Sub timQuit_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles timQuit.Tick
    End Sub
