Windows 7: Exit all programs shortcut. Does it exist?

Windows 7 Home, Windows 7 Professional, Fedora, SUSE

This awesome tool doesn't kill the processes, but it can hide all windows using a hotkey you assign.

I have something that does just what you want. I will have to look for it. It is very late here and time for bed! PM me later and remind me to look for it.

I have used a freeware program called CloseAll. It closed all open programs as soon as you hit the shortcut.
