Disconnecting with Squirrel

How to disconnect Squirrel from the database? That's surprising but Squirrel has no 'disconnect' button.. how is it even possible that the tool working with database has no such functionality...?..?..??

Closing the window with a connection doesn't interrupt the connection itself. I have to restart a whole Squirrel to achieve disconnection which is a bit inconvenient.

It's a menu option and it's way down on the list. I don't have a copy of squirrel handy right now, but I've used it often, and I, too, have wondered why they didn't make it more obvious.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

It would be very handy if someone could post a way on how to do that - I really can't find the disconnect option.

The only thing I see is "close session" - but it only closes the session sheet, and doesn't drop the connection itself.. Really annoying, especially when working with Derby embedded - I have to restart Squirrel every single time
