    Mid 2015 15" rMBP, 2.8GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB Storage, AMD Radeon R9 M370X, 10.11.1
    You can set Hot Corners to start the screen saver and/or put the display to sleep when you put the cursor in the selected corner (System Prefs>ExposÚ & Spaces>ExposÚ. It’s under Active Screen Corners).

    Lol at this question. I hope you are asking this because you'll be buying birthday presents or planning a surprise party for someone, and not for some other reason.

    Anyway, you can also use ^ arrows or ^ #'s to switch spaces.

    You can hide an application by pressing Command-H, or you can assign a corner of your screen to go to the screensaver if the mouse pointer gets near it.

    If you have a multi-button mouse you can also set one of the buttons to hide or minimize an app with a single click. CMD + H means one hand on the mouse, one hand on the keyboard and one hand for...uh...well......lets just say it gets awkward.
