Those steps are necessary for any multiuser OS, but the time you'll have to wait for your data to hit disk varies between filesystems. I don't know what Windows and NTFS do specifically, but they certainly buffer disk writes, so I'd expect similar behavior.

comment Ghost typing — has my Mac been hacked?
So far all you know is that there seemed to be keyboard input coming from somewhere other than your keyboard. Lacking any other information you should consider wireless input methods such as Bluetooth as a possible source.
