How do I disable "Unconditionally reboot" key combo on mac?

My fingers are fat. I use to press OPTION + COMMAND +EJECT to get the machine to standby. Sometimes I press CTRL + COMMAND + EJECT by mistake... and here it goes, it reboots itself..

I want to disable the 2nd combo. Looked under Keyboard in System settings, nothing there.

Thanks.

As far as I can tell, "be more careful" is the only fix for that issue. Oh, and using the menu option for sleep rather than the key command, that also avoids the problem.
