Default Steam Cloud Saves not working right?

Why do the cloud saves say they are syncing, but in reality I am lucky if it really did sync? Wanted to continue my game on my laptop after I verified that the latest Steam cloud sync was done on my desktop, get on the laptop and find that the save that was synced is about 30 minutes behind.

Have you tried shutting down Steam on your desktop to force it to finish syncing to the cloud storage?

No, When Steam says it has synced the file, I expect that it did. Do you have to make sure to close Steam every time?

That sucks, I always thought when it said it was syncing and then says 100% synced I was good to go. Stop blatantly lying to me Steam.

Make sure you do the same on your laptop when you quit (otherwise you won't get the latest files again on your desktop).
