The developer is AWOL and the download link doesn't work. However, you can still find the program here:

The ability to switch to the user login screen is very welcome. Used to implement this behavior with Winswitch but that has been abandoned long time ago. And no luck when trying to set this up from the Shortcuts definitions in Apple's "Keyboards" pref pane

This is great! Thanks for creating it.

One thing that might help, especially for windows users coming to the Mac. On Windows, you trigger the equivalent dialog with the forward delete key (next to "end"), not the backwards delete key. It would be nice if Salute took either combination.

I agree with the other suggestions for having key combos for the other buttons.

Cool.

Can you make this put Mac to Sleep?

How about entering a letter to invoke specific command?

cANCEL, tERMINAL, mONITOR, sCREENSAVER, SLEEp, SHUTdOWN, rESTART

Maybe a different app?

Anyway, Thanx

Control-Power or Control-Eject or Control-hold F12 (on keyboards without a power or eject key) then 's' will sleep your Mac.

Again, cool.

I can't help feel a trifle more motivated to learn more keyboard shortcuts, now that I've had my complacency 'adjusted'. ;-)
