I have seen a shortcut to shutdown mac using key combinations. It includes the use of eject key. But since retina macbooks dont have eject key how do I shutdown/reboot the retina mac.
This link is having query regarding puting it to sleep but I cannot see shutdown/reboot. Is pressing power button and selecting the choice the only option I have ??

Just use the power button in place of eject for any keyboard shortcut that worked with eject (this also applies to older MacBooks, by the way).
