I use Alt+F4 almost exclusively to close windows since day one.
To shutdown my PC at night, I just sit on Alt+F4 and eventually
reach the Desktop. There, fortunately, the next Alt+F4 invokes the
Shutdown menu.

I say fortunately, because the good old Ctrl+Alt+Del in Windows 8
is useless for shutting down fast via the keyboard!

Before that, I hit Q on my ZTree sessions, of course.
