"Power off" or "Restart" immediately kills all processes, causing lost work, in 20.04 Focal Fossa

It has always done this for me, on 3 computers I've used Ubuntu with, with several different kernels. E.g. I can open a new document in LibreOffice, write some text, then choose "Power off" or "Restart" and the machine instantly shuts down (like holding the power button in). Isn't it supposed to prompt you to save unsaved work first?

Something similar was asked several years ago, and apparently the answer is "yes", at least for some apps, but it still doesn't do it for me with any app - including the ones that ship with Ubuntu. I can shutdown Ubuntu system without closing all running programs.I think this should not happens

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
