I just want to push 2 buttons at the same time to go to screen saver mode.

Is there a setting for that in system preferences where I can set my keyboard shortcuts?

If you're looking to bring up the screen saver to lock your computer, you can achieve the same thing with Control+Shift+Eject, which makes the screen dark (and locks the computer).

But only if System Preferences — Security — General — ☑ Require password [immediately] after sleep or screen saver begins. –  ؘؘؘؘ Mar 31 '11 at 15:11
