MacBook Air/Retina equivalent of Ctrl+Shift+Eject is Ctrl+Shift+Fn+Power (via: Apple Support Communities)

Recent Retina and MacBook Air’s do not have an optical drive, so they do without the Eject button on the keyboard.

The quick keyboard shortcut Control+Shift+Eject is not directly available, so what is the replacement?

For newer Retina and MacBook Air’s, control+shift+fn+power button replaces control+shift+eject.

In fact you can even press Fn+Power and get a small dialog that lets you choose what to do and offers a “Reopen windows when logging back in” checkbox:

  • Restart
  • Sleep
  • Cancel
  • Shut Down
