There's a 3 key shortcut already. :thumbsup:

Note: do not keep each key pressed when you press the next one. Press one, release it..press the next, release it..etc..

Windows Logo Key > U > U

If you notice when you hit the Windows Logo Key (and the Start Menu comes up), the u in "Turn off computer" is underlined. Pressing U does the action that has U underlined (like hitting Alt + some letter in any application). Hit U again, the u in "Turn off" is also underlined, so it performs that action (shutdown). Pressing R here instead of U would do a Restart.

Note: The letters you have to hit to do this vary by version of Windows....the way you access "Power Button Actions" for Vista and Windows 7 are slightly different. :flowers:
