Recently, I was using one of my custom short cuts and fat fingered the F12 key on my laptop… What resulted was my screen shutting off. Mystified, I began searching for standard OS X keyboard shortcuts that included the eject key. Here are a few I found over at My Ethereal Mind.**It seems Greg has taken this page down…
|Ctrl – Shift – Eject||Puts screen to sleep|
|Option – Command – Eject||Computer to sleep|
|Ctrl – Command – Eject||Computer Restart|
|Ctrl – Option – Command – Eject||Shutdown computer completely|
Obviously these are great for when you’re leaving for the day, or if you just need to lock your screen while you goto lunch. Do you have any non-standard shortcuts you use daily? Share them in the comments.
