    Is there a keyboard shortcut for the boxes that pop up like shut down - don't shut down, save - don't save, etc?
    Thanks

    Yes, when you want to save something, you press CMD+S, when you want to open something, you press CMD+O and if you are on a notebook, pressing the power button, unless specified to do something else, you get that "Restart, Sleep, Shutdown or Cancel" dialog.

    Save (when already selected) = Return key
    Don't Save = CMD+Backspace (Lion and up, otherwise it's CMD+D. CMD+Backspace doesn't work with MS Word, etc. CMD+D does.)

    Shutdown = CMD + ALT/OPTION + CTRL + EJECT
    Reboot = CMD + CTRL + EJECT
    Sleep = CMD + ALT/OPTION + EJECT
    Turn Off Display = SHIFT + CTRL + EJECT
