1) Change the keyboard shortcut using the Preferences.
2) The Confirmation Dialogs item under General in the Preferences may,
depending on what release of MATLAB you're using, have an item that requires
you to confirm before closing MATLAB.
3) Create a finish.m file that prompts you when you try to close MATLAB
(accidentally or intentionally.)
