moderated Re: shutting down my laptop with jaws?

Sure, start by opening up your control panel and make sure it set to small or large icons.
Select power options and press ENTER.
Press TAB until you get to select what the power buttons do and press ENTER.
TAB down until you get to the combo box which says what to do when the power button is pressed.
Use your arrow keys to select Shut Down.
If you have have a laptop there are two combo boxes to set, one for on battery and one for plugged in.
TAB down to the Save button and press ENTER.
That should do it.

Just to add another option into the mix; in power options you can
configure the power button to trigger a shut down.

And, for yet another option, you can create a desktop shortcut to do
an immediate shutdown for your computer:

1.  Once you have focus on the desktop, hit the Applications/Menu Key
or SHIFT+F10, immediately followed by W for the New option,
immediately followed by S for the Shortcut option.
2. In the edit box labeled, "Type the location of the item:" enter the
full path to the program you wish to run along with any command line
options you may want it to take.  To trigger a system shutdown, this
would be:
*%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /f /t 0*
3.  Activate the Next button.
4.  In the edit box labeled, "Type a name for this shortcut:," enter
whatever you want the name to be when it's created on the desktop.  I
happened to name mine, "Immediate Shutdown."  At this point, you may
be finished.  If you don’t need a keyboard shortcut then hit the
Finish button and you’re done.   Otherwise, continue on after having
activated the Finish button.
5.  Locate the shortcut you just created on your desktop and gain
focus on it.  With focus on it hit either the Menu/Applications Key or
SHIFT+F10, immediately followed by R for Properties.
6.  In the Properties dialog for your shortcut, navigate to the edit
box labeled, "Shortcut key:," or hit ALT+K to be thrown into that edit
box.  I have found no way to set up anything other than "Ctrl + Alt +"
followed by the letter or lowercase keyboard character of your
choice.  One simply hits that character and the CTRL + ALT + part is
populated ahead of it.
7.  Navigate to the OK key and activate it.  Your desktop shortcut now
has a keyboard shortcut associated with it.
