When I close KeePass 1.25 with ESC it will lock the database. How do I set it to close window but NOT locking the database?
I can't find a option for that. I've tried all settings options but even if I've set to iconify in the tray + don't lock, ESC will still lock the DB on window closing.
Closing from the windows gadget it works as expected instead and DB won't be locked.

Windows 7 x64.

    KeePass V1 locks when you press Escape and cannot be changed.
    V2 does not lock when you press Escape, which is less convenient but more consistent with Windows and potentially safer.

    cheers, Paul

    I'm not planning to change this behavior in KeePass 1.x (Esc is a shortcut for locking the workspace).

    Best regards,
