CTRL+W and W both are used hotkeys. So either way, you can hit the Q  
key here.

A menu to say "do you want to save etc" was discussed extensively  
before, and - apart from if we want that - just cannot be implemented  
in a meaningful way until we have a reliable internal method to detect  
whether something relevant changed. (I personally detest the "do you  
want to save etc" in other apps... in almost all cases it's wrong and  
blocks your workflow).

When you quit blender, it renames the last saved temp file to  
'quit.blend'. What I like to experiment with is an option that it  
actually does a full save on quit, so you always have the latest  
version. Can even make it load that file automatic on start, making  
"CTRL+X" the action to do to get a clean workspace! :)
