How to shut down with keystrokes only

With Window XP I could shut down the computer (or restart) using just the keyboard.  (Ctrl-Esc U).  With Windows 7 I have to use the mouse.  Is there anyway to shutdown and/or restart using just the keyboard?

Answer

Not elegant but:

Win, →, Enter   =  Shutdown
Win, →, →, R    =  Restart
Win, →, →, S    =  Sleep
Win, →, →, W   =  Switch Users
Win+L               =   Locks computer

Also:

ALT + F4  brings up a shutdown menu when no windows are open.

Press enter for shutdown
