Apple OS X | Keyboard Shortcuts to Sleep, Restart, and Shutdown any Apple Computer



This tutorial will show you how to shutdown, restart, and sleep any Apple computer using only keyboard keystroke combinations.

This Tutorial Performed on:
Apple MacBook Pro 5,5 (Mid 2009)
OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 (But these steps are universal throughout the OS X universe).

Since Windows 95, Windows-based computers have had the ability to sleep, restart, and shut down with, but, a simple key stroke. But shutting down an Apple  computer was very laborious. To do this on a Mac  you have to move the pointer to the Apple  menu, at the top left, scroll down, then choose one of the three options (Sleep, Restart, Shut Down), then click the “Shut Down” button. But to do this you must move your hand from the mouse.

While my comments may seem lazy to you, I like to think of it as efficiency. It takes me nearly 9 seconds to shut down the computer with the mouse. But with the fast key stroke, it only takes .5 seconds.

I have always been a keyboard shortcut user. I like for my hands to stay in one place. I like to do things fast.

(In Windows) Using “Ctrl+Shift+N” to created a new folder. Instead of going to the File menu and scrolling down to choose New, then Folder.
(Or on a Mac ) Using “Shift+Com+N” to create a new folder.

The ‘Key Stroke’ is nearly instantaneous, why use the mouse?

Having to move to the mouse more times than necessary seemed tedious for me. But I’ve always had to use the mouse to shut down the fleet of Apple  computers at my house.

Finally! I have discovered, through extensive research, the way to Sleep, Restart, and Shut Down my Apple  computers with only the flick of a couple fingers on the keyboard.

Sleep:
Option – Command – Eject

Restart:
Control – Command – Eject

Shut Down:
Control – Option – Command – Eject

CAUTION!!!!
By using the Mouse method, you are given the opportunity to cancel the Sleep/Restart/Shut Down. But by using the Key Stroke, the command happens immediately without any options. So be sure you want to do what you have chosen to do because there will be no opportunities to second-guess yourself.

If you know of any other cool, obscure Key combinations, please feel free to put them in the comments below. I’d like to compile a list.

I know of many useful ones but not all of them.

If you’ll notice above, I’ve put a  after Apple/Mac. How did I do that? Why, a Key-Stroke of course. Shift + Option + K = .

Enjoy!

  • 3 comments (not trying to make anyone look wrong, just keeping it real :-))
    a) Windows machines have NOT always had a Windows key. Because of this, ctrl+esc also gets the Start Menu)
    b) FYI – fastest way to get to Windows shut down / sleep /restart dialog (if Windows desktop has the focus) is alt+f4…
    c) THANKS for making this video – sometimes it is hard to figure out Mac stuff like this through the Mac itself 🙂
