>> Hey everyone, welcome to Tekzilla Daily, I'm Veronica Belmont. Today's tip comes courtesy of Alister [assumed spelling] who hails from the land of the long white cloud. Okay. Now if you're an OS X user with a fancy for keyboard shortcuts, Alister has a great tip for you.

Want to send your screen to sleep, just press Control, Shift, Eject. Wanna send your whole computer to sleep, that's Option, Command, Eject. Need to restart, it's as easy as Control, Command, Eject. What about shutting it down all together. Control, Option, Command, Eject. Thanks Alister, it's always great to hear from our viewers down in New Zealand -- oh, that's it.
