What IS even the perfective, and when is it used?

I assume you probably found that thread a bit later, but just in case: see here.

It's safe to assume that you want to close the window once and well, so it stays closed, so that's why it's perfective. Imperfective "zamykać" would be used if you wanted to spend the whole day closing the window every five minutes.
