How do you formally disconect a client from a server?

Hey, everybody. I'm writing a chat server and client, and I've noticed that whenever I just shut down the client, the server throws an error, but no functionality is affected.

If so, how would I do that? I'm using plain Sockets, by the way.

Client source code:

Good practice would be to catch the exception, log the fact that the client disconnected and clean up any resources in use.
