Default Closing all child window when browser is closed

Hi all,
I just want to ask help for my problem in my page.

Scenario 1:

I have two page, Page1(the default page) has created a child window when i go to page2 the child window created in Page1 is still open, then now Page2 created its own child window. When i close the browser how can i close the child window created by Page1. Since Page2 can easy close its child created using window.close.

Sceanrio 2:

I have two page, Page1(the default page) has created a child window when i go to page2 the child window created in Page1 is still open, then now Page2 created its own child window. When i click logout all child window created by Page1 and Page2 will be closed.

I hope you can help me this.

Part of requirement is not to close the child window created by Page1 when going to Page2.

I *THINK* this will work:

(1) Make sure that every window has a name. That is, when you create the window, make sure you give it a name:
    window.open("childPage.aspx", "CHILD", "...whatever..." );
and from the child:
    window.open("theBaby.aspx", "GRANDCHILD", "..." );

(2) Later, when you need to "find" that same window again (in page2 or wherever) you find it thus:
    var kid = window.open( "", "CHILD" );
notice the lack of URL there.

That *should* find the window and then you can do
    kid.close( );


But I don't know if your user will get one of those annoying "an application is trying to close this window..." messages.

And the answer might vary by browser.

Let me know. I'd try it, but I need to get to sleep.
