I have a system where I need to see active users, so I created a web page to see the logged in users
In the main ASP.NET application I record the login time when they sign on and logout time when they sign off or the session ends

When the close the browser I need to log them off, (update their logout timestamp)
Hence I need to trap the browser close click , which I do

I have posted previously and found a solution to track the browser click

I need to find a way how to update the database when the user goes to Task Manager and kills the browser session any code sample will be great

Please note my app has a login page, master page and few other aspx pages that use the master page.

But when you click "End Process" in Task Manager it forces the process to terminate. It will lose whatever data hasn't been saved.

This is made worse by the client/server architecture of the web. on the client machine, you can only run client side code (js etc).

If it had been a windows forms app, I would suggest this topic: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2055753/how-to-gracefully-terminate-a-process.

So can you initiate anything in js within a webpage to see if the process hosting is being killed.

The only way I think is to use an AJAX request from client every 1 minute or so.
if server didn't receive the request in 5 minutes, then the client is disconnected.
