Chapter 1. Using Mac OS X > Startup and Shutdown Keys

1.2. Startup and Shutdown Keys

For most users, starting and shutting down your Mac is fairly routine: press the Power-On button to start, and go to →Shut Down to turn off the machine at night. But there are times when you need to do more, for whatever reason. Table 1-1 lists some of the additional keys you can use when starting, restarting, logging out, and shutting down your system.

Some of the keyboard shortcuts listed in Table 1-1 work only on newer hardware. If you are using an older Mac, these keyboard shortcuts might not work.
