Is there a way to make Notepad++ exit when the last tab is closed, e.g. by pressing Ctrl+W?

The current behaviour is that a new empty document is created, when the last open tab is closed.

When the last tab is closed, use Alt+F4, which is the general shortcut to end programs in windows. Kind regards, mtness. – mtness Jul 19 '11 at 15:07
+1. This bugs me too. – Ulrich Gerhardt Jul 21 '11 at 13:50
Yeah, it's really annoying. Wish there was a way to fix it. – Sean Kearon Oct 22 '11 at 10:58

Notepad++ has a page where you can request new features. Why not ask the author nicely? Who knows you may get the feature built into the next version. The program source code is also available, so if you know a programmer who understands the code and owes you a favour, maybe you could convince them to do it.
