    Real macs can be put to sleep or shut down with their keyboards

    Option + Command + Eject


    Go to sleep

    Control + Option + Command + Eject

    Shut Down

    Small hack emulating this behaviour with macOS Services

    Attached to this post are 2 scripts. Open/edit the 'Power Off' script in automator and provide your password. For example if your password was "tonymacx86" you would edit the line

    Code (Text):
    set pass to "password" as string
    to read

    Code (Text):
    set pass to "tonymacx86" as string
    Now the scripts can be installed to ~/Library/Services and keyboard shortcuts of your choosing assigned!

    Eject and close the optical drive tray

    Hi, vulgo
    Thanks for these very useful scripts.
    And I have a request. Could you make a script to open/close cd tray?
    Thanks in advance.

    Glad you find them useful. I don't have an optical drive for testing, but this macrumors thread seems to have a solution for CD tray automation. See attached archive containing the commands as services.

    Credits for usage of drutil command: tjwett over on macrumors forums

    Thank you for this, vulgo.
    drutil command works good on terminal app. but unfortunately i have failed to add your workflow as a service. I will try it again later. Thank you.

    My fault i hadn't set the workflow input parameter to none. Uninstall the existing files from ~/Library/Services if they are there and try these ones attached.
