Beside those I use these handy shortcuts

 

Windows + (number) = Starts the program pinned on Windows 7 Taskbar (counting from left to right).

Windows + right arrow (→) + Enter = Shutdown

Windows + right arrow +right arrow + R = Restart

Windows + L = Lock the computer (when I need to walk away fast and leave system locked).

Windows + Pause [break] = Open System Properties.

Windows + M = Minimize all windows (handy if boss walks in on you playing games, online shopping, etc :P ).
