Hotkey Shortcut to Shut Down Any Apple Mac Computer

Geek Tip: Use a Keyboard Shortcut to Shut Down Your Mac

Learning useful hotkeys makes my heart swell, as do any efficient shortcuts (I say it once a week to somebody: if you're not using Quicksilver, you're wasting your own time).

Here's two keyboard shortcuts to expedite shutdown for any Apple computer:

  • To shut down, press Control + Command (Apple) + Option and Eject for shut down.
  • Alternatively, Control + Command + Eject restarts your computer.

haha that's what i was thinking... i'm more of a mouse-y person i guess. to me, opening apps with quicksilver also takes longer than just keeping my app folder as a stack in the dock.

I don't know that four buttons is faster than clicking the Apple menu > shutdown. To each their own, though!
