Yesterday I was at a friend's place and saw his new macbook air. I really liked the button in the right top corner which shuts the computer down in a second. I have a macbook late 2012 (so not the latest model but one before) which does not have this button. Is there a way to setup this button to have the same function? Or a sort of shortkey?

Greets and thanks

Yeah it was the button in the top right corner, then you can click enter and your macbook will shut down. I was just wondering whether I could realize something like this on my own macbook which does not have this button.
