Hi All, I found this on the Apple power tips website and it is so valuable (to me at least) that I thought I would share it here. Hopefully, some of you may find it of use.

Do you put your Mac to sleep each night? Instead of how you do it now, try this out - pretty slick. Hold down the CMD, Option and Media Eject Keys for a second or two. Boom! Your Mac is "out cold". It is so simple and so fast. I love it.

By the way, here is the original page:

There are tons of great tips on the parent page to this one. Check it out. Fun reading.

nifty nifty. But being on a macbook, there's an easier option available to me. Close the lid. To shut down, I usually just hit the power button (not holding it) and press return.

I love finding out these little short cuts. Another one I discovered by chance (although pretty much useless) is to hold ctrl+opt+command and use < and > to decrease and increase monitor contrast respectively. Just don't leave it up, as I must have done on my iBook before I learned this shortcut. For years I thought the calibration was busted heheh

mac57, this is a virtual reputation point (as the system won't let me give you another just yet). Very cool shortcut w/ nice followups from hiohokaybye. Most cool! :p
