    So I have a habbit of just pulling out my USB key when i'm done..
    But i realised the other day.. there must be a way to .. no matter what screen you are in you can hit a button like f12 or a sequence like command + x
    and it automatically ejects your USB drive..

    anyone had experience or know of a way to do this?
    thanks

    Jettison app will auto-eject just before sleeping, and also provides a menubar button to permit a more manual eject.

    Pretty handy!

    highlight the drive icon on desktop and press Command+E

    This same trick also works to eject optical disks and Disk Images (DMGs) too.
