Yes, if she sees the "stop" button, it might save automatically. It has the Sugar-standard octagonal shape with a dark square inside: 

If instead it shows a round "exit" button with a dark cross-mark on it, it won't save. This is the same icon as shown in Etoys on other platforms:

It mimics the "delete" halo handle. Also, on other UIs than Sugar, the cross is used widely as icon for closing a window.
