That doesn’t make it the best or even user friendly behavior…

To extend the already stretched metaphor, after stopping my Garmin I can do bike maintenance, wash it down, review the ride, etc. I’m not forced to immediately walk inside my house then go back outside, reopen my garage just to do simple “maintenance” items.
That’s the behavior we’re looking for - not quitting instantly doesn’t hurt people who don’t want to do those items post ride, they can simply hit CMD+Q or ALT+F4 and quit, just as those that don’t want to “wash their bike” can go inside when they finish the ride, but that behavior shouldn’t be forced on all users.

That’s actually all I’m hoping for by commenting and upvoting here and my own direct feature request - give us an indication it’s even being considered, planned or not planned. Either way we could all stop asking because we’d know it’s being thought about or coming, or never going to come.
