    I've owned several MacBook Pros dating to 2007. I'd typically press ctrl-opt-cmd-eject to shut down, or ctrl-cmd-eject to reboot.

    On my 2012 15" rMBP, the eject key functionality has been replaced with the power button. However, when I use either of the two key combinations, when the computer reboots, I receive an error message upon logging in, "You shut down your computer because of a problem."

    I do not get this message when choosing >Restart. . . or >Shut Down. . . from the Apple Menu; nor do I get this message if restarting by pressing the power button and then selecting Restart or Shutdown from the popup that presents itself.

    2012 15" 2.7 GHz rMBP, 16GB, 768SSD, Running 10.8.2

    I wanted to ask whether others are experiencing similar results, and whether anyone can share insight as to [1] why this is occurring and [2] how to prevent it?

    thanks!

    What happens if you use the Fn key together with your commands?
    Might solve it.

    No change. . .

    Thanks for the suggestion though. What was your thinking/rationale behind adding the fn key to the combination?

    cheers,

    On discussions.apple.com/ there were some commands with the FN key.
