both will work to empty the trash....here's the difference:

cmd + shift + delete will empty the trash, but will ask "ok" or "cancel"

cmd + shift + option + delete will empty the trash without asking

Thanks Darkroom for sharing but on my MBP I found the sleep screen combo to be Control+Shift+Eject >.<

Personally I have the Extra Scripts plug-in for QS, so I don't have to be in Finder...
