I haven't used keyboard shortcuts very much and have the following Q.

If I press control+eject, I get the shutdown dialog. It has four options -- Restart, Sleep, Cancel and Shut Down with the default selection being Shut Down. Is it possible to choose any of the other options without using the mouse?

Thanks very much. Just a follow up. Are there any occassions where such a dialog might have two or more options with the same starting letter. In that case do you have to type more than one letter.

No; it'll be different. That situation is a very rare occurance indeed.

In most (nearly system wide) dialog boxes you can also do Apple-D for don't save, Apple-S or enter for save, and Apple-. (period) works the same way as escape (cancel).

There aren't many boxes where you can just press a letter without a modifier key.
