View Full Version : Keyboard shortcut to shut down?

Oct 14, 2011, 12:08 AM
You can normally press Control + Option + Command + Eject to shut down Mac OS X.

... except that the Air does not have an Eject key.

Is there an alternative key combination to shut it down? Or are we out of luck?

Thanks in advance for your help...

[UPDATE] I know pressing the power button will prompt you to shut down. I want to shut down without a prompt like that.

Maybe set a hot key to run an Automator action that launches the erase-history shutdown program?

Shut your computer's lid.

If you install Alfred (available online/in the appstore) it has a shutdown method if you type shutdown
