The default method involves going to the Apple menu at the top of the screen and select "Log Out". This brings up a dialog box that forces you to confirm the decision. If you hold down the Option key while selecting "Log Out", it will bypass the confirmation dialog.

Alternatively, you can use an app like Alfred to log out using just keyboard commands.
