saving contents of applications with a frozen kde desktop

The dcop interface looked interesting first, but this only works for kde
applications aware of dcop. As the dcop interface is easy to use I was able to
send messages to e.g. kate and to tell it to close a given document. I have
not found a save method that I can send to kate. unfortunately a popupwindow,
warning me that the file was modified and if I want to save them prior
closing. With a frozen desktop a bit useless. So I do believe this is the
wrong way to go.
Anybody has an other idea how to save the work of open (non KDE) applications
in a frozen KDE desktop?
