Is there a hotkey sequence to send minerals or gas to your ally? Alternatively is there a way to bind hotkeys to the action?

If there isn't, note that the scrollwheel increases the mineral count to send far faster than the GUI button. – Lee Sep 17 '10 at 13:07
@Lee if that is true you should make that an answer! – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Sep 17 '10 at 16:19

Press Ctrl + F12 to summon the Team Resources menu. Should you want to send many resources at once, use the scrollwheel to increase the resource count (it's far faster than clicking the GUI button). Holding the Ctrl key while clicking the increase or decrease buttons apparently uses increments of 100.

I don't believe there is any in-game way to bind a pre-determined amount to a key.

Mouse wheel scroll is excellent - with a fast-scrolling mouse, you can send towards 10k minerals in under a second. – andrewb Mar 28 at 10:29
