Example of logging out when there are stopped jobs

To logout when there are stopped jobs:

   man ls
   ....
   ....
   <Ctrl-z>
   Stopped
   logout	      
   There are stopped jobs.
   fg
   man ls
   --More--(8%)
   q
   logout

The user starts a job by entering the command to view the manual page for the ls command. They then "stop" this job with a the control key combination Ctrl-z.

It is not possible to logout until this "job" is started again and they quit from using it. They are then able to logout.
