    Hello, I'm wondering if there is a way to choose from different options without using the mouse in a pop-up window (not sure how they are called, but the window that pops up and asks if you want to save, cancel or don't save). You know, like with the arrows, choose what you want to do, and press enter to do that.

    Thanks :)

    System Preferences > Keyboard

    You can then use Tab to select what you wanna do, the Space bar lets you select buttons that are framed with the blue line, the fully blue buttons are selected with the Enter key.

    Example:

    Space Bar to restart, Enter key to shut down.

    Thank you very much, I didn't thought of looking on the keyboard preference pane. :D
