Keyboard shortcut for twirling or twiddling open/close tabs in timeline window???

I haven't been able to find the keyboard shortcut for this:

But does a keyboard shortcut exist in AE CS 5 for twirling or twiddling open and closed the tabs in the timeline for each layer. And if not, can one be created, and if so how?

I'd like to have a keyboard shortcut that allows me to instantly close a layer in the timeline. Constantly having to mouse over to do this slows down my workflow and gets quite cumbersome.

Thanks very much in advance.

Um, how about the u key? Or the uu key combo? Or the other property keyboard shortcuts? Don't they work for you?

I know there are a boatload of them, and they way they're organized doesn't always make sense, but Adobe does list every standard keyboard shortcut in AE's online help.
