View Full Version : Keyboard Restart or Shutdown without Eject key? Possible?

Is there a way with the Air's not having a eject key to do a shutdown or restart with a keyboard command without having a eject key?


Control Option-Command-Eject Quit all applications (after giving you a chance to save changes to open documents), then shut down the computer

Lack of Eject button sucks :(

I am used to restart (Control+Command+Eject), put to sleep (Option+Command +Eject), shutdown (Control+Option+Command+Eject), switch display off (Control+Shift+Eject) using keyboard.

New MacBook Air makes all these shortcuts useless...

I use a hot corner.

Do the same shortcuts work with the Power button instead?
