       mate-session-save - End or save the current MATE session


       mate-session-save   [--logout]   [--force-logout]   [--logout-dialog]  [--shutdown-dialog]
       [--gui] [--kill [--silent]]


       The mate-session-save program can be used from a MATE session to either  end  the  current
       MATE session or save a snapshot of the currently running applications (but not both). This
       session will be later restored at your next MATE session.


       The --gui option will report errors in dialog boxes instead of printing to stderr.

       If called with the --logout option, the current MATE session will be ended, unless logging
       out has been inhibited by an application. The --force-logout option can be used to end the
       session regardless of the inhibition state.

       When the --logout-dialog option is given, the standard dialog displaying logout options is
       displayed. When --shutdown-dialog option is given, the standard dialog displaying shutdown
       options is displayed.

       The --kill and --silent options are deprecated. The --kill option  is  equivalent  to  the
       --logout-dialog  option.  If  --silent  is  used  with  --kill,  then it will behave as if
       --logout was used.

       The session is not saved when mate-session-save is called with any of the  options  ending
       the session.
