    This morning my mother was on my ibook when I heard her say "what happened?" I go to the ibook and it was off. Not sleeping, completely off.And it took a while to respond to my pressing the power button. She was working on a document and was pressing some keys, but can't remember which and thinks one of them was delete. Is there a keyboard command to shut off the computer using delete, if she was pressing the apple keys or ctrl? This has never happened before and and wondering what went wrong. :confused:

    I know of one such shortcut that reboots the computer: Command+Control+Power Key. I don't know of any shortcuts to shut down the computer. The reboot shortcut is meant to be used only when the computer is not responding and cannot be restarted normally.

    Yes, i think its command control option delete. I used to know it, and don't want to test it now.
