Default Shutdown key??

Hey all, the other day i was playing Lineage 2 and working with a group nailing many many creatures. Anyways, i was pressing keys that i had binded as shortcuts and i must have pressed multiple keys at once cause my PC loggged off and then shut down.

Anyone know what key would have caused that?

I, too have had untimely keystrokes end my games prematurely.
I'm not totally sure what would log off and shut down, but maybe you hit Alt-F4 to close the game?

Sticky keys....accessibility options...........all these things get in the way of my games all the time....

Go into the accessibility options and disable sticky keys and all of the other keyboard setting thing-a-ma-jigs

the keystrokes for shutdown in xp-2000 is [windows key (between the ctrl and alt) ] [u] [enter]

u could have accidentally hit the windows key and the other 2 in that sequence.
