    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?

    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...

    Do the same shortcuts work with the Power button instead?
