    Hi.

    On my MacBook Air I can shut down my Mac by holding down ctrl+alt+cmd+ eject key, but does anyone know how I can do that with the 13" MacBook Pro 2016 w/ Touchbar?

    Got it!

    To shut down the new MacBook Pro with TouchBar you have to hold down shift+ctrl+alt and press the power button :)

    For some reason the Mac shuts down much faster this way compared to when click the Apple logo in the menubar and select Shut Down... I wonder if it can damage the system or my files by doing the "shift+ctrl+alt and press the power button" command?

    What do you all think?

    How long are you holding down the power button? More than 5 seconds and you're just powering off the system without shutting it down. Bad idea.
