Is there a shortcut key for turning the metronome on and off? Thanks!

No, but just set up your own and save the session as a template.
Mine is simply the 'm' key

How do you "set up your own" key command? From what I've read Ableton doesn't have a 'customize key commands' function a la logic, which is a downer. I've heard other people say that they create key commands for Ableton using the Mac OS (system pref>keyboard>keyboard shortcuts>application shortcuts). I've gotten that far, but the problem I have is knowing the proper name for the function you want a shortcut to. There is some proper name for toggling the metronome on/off that you have to put in if you want the Mac OS to implement the hotkey (it can't just be "Metronome on/off" or "Toggle Metronome". It has to be something, I just don't know what it is). Do you have any guidance to offer here? Maybe there is a list of these functions somewhere? Or is there another way to customize your key commands? Thanks a lot.

You press ctrl-k (cmd-k on make i presume) or click on the KEY icon upper right corner.
Now everything that turns yellow can be mapped to whatever key you please.
Once pleased with your settings go to Preferences-File and save this as default set. Done.

Keep in mind that while computer midi keyboard is activated (the little piano icon) then the keys that do the piano thing wont send shortcuts ofcourse.

Mine is exclamation point :P. it just sounds exclamation pointish!! ! ! ! !

Also, I use ^ for overdub off/on. Kinda has an overdubby vibe to it.
