Are handles closed automatically when they fall out of scope?

I know it's a rather mundane question, but I couldn't find
an answer to it!
So what does happen when I forget to hClose a Handle? Will
the garbage collector do that for me? Or not?
And more specifically, what about the handles
runInteractiveProcess returns? Do I have to close the
"stdin" Handle? All of them? What happens when I use
terminateProcess? Do I have to hClose them nonetheless?
And while I am at it: How about Socket? Do I have to sClose
a socket I obtained from listenOn or accept?
Any definite answers would be highly appreciated.
