    I don't think there's any key combination to force a CLEAN shutdown or restart without any questions asked.

    CTRL-CMD-EJECT does a restart with no questions.

    Add OPT to that for a shutdown (CTRL-OPT-CMD-EJECT)

    To reset SMC for Macs that do NOT have a removable battery:

    Hold down control-option-shift & power keys simultanelously, all at once. Release all keys. Press power button to restart.
