Windows 7: Toggle aero

Toggle aero

I think I read somewhere, that there is a shortcut for toggling Aero on/off. But I can't fint it again

In my memory it was CTRL-ALT-F9, but that doesn't work after installing build 7077.

Anyone has this?

I sometimes want to turn aero off quickly for a short period of time (e.g. when runing 3dsmax 64bit, the "disable desktop composition" in compatibility options is grayed out) and the method for vista (rundll32.exe dwmApi #102) doesn't work. Any ideas?
