How do you close the dialog? :)

By pressing "Cancel"?
The settings are preserved.

By pressing the red [x] (close button) in top-right corner of the dialog's title bar?
The settings are NOT preserved.

Yes - because:

1. Windows & Linux (at least Ubuntu / Mint) sez so. Nowadays for settings there isn't 'Ok/Apply' button anymore. When someone changes a setting, the setting is persisted automatically. "Ok/Cancel" are only for actions: "do" or "do not" a certain action.

2. If the "Cancel" button saves settings (a strong negative button/message) then how much more the "Close" (a neutral message) should do it?

there is already a thread about Cancel/Close, and it seems that windows use always 'Cancel'

IMHO it seems that I wasn't very clear: my point is that Win10 and Linux (Gnome/Unity at least) save the settings when the user press this button:
Screen-2018-02-13_10-15-22.jpg
Screen-2018-02-13_10-15-22.jpg (7.82 KiB) Viewed 246 times
In order to see go to, for example, in Win10 to „Settings | Power (Sleep options)” - you will see a dialog without any button just the „X” pictured above.
If you change a setting there (try it, it will not harm a lot) and close the window by pressing the „X” the settings will be saved. This is (unfortunately or not) the standard behavior today.
