I'm trying to recreate my wacom tablet in blender and I'm trying to model one of the express keys so that's flat against the actual tablet surface. It's basically just a button shape:
Q: How do I model this shape?

Add a Circle mesh and select half of the vertices.
Press Y to separate the selection, and move it away along whichever axis it faces.
Select all (A) and press F to fill the shape with an n-gon.
In Edge Select Mode (2), select the two longest edges, press W and select Subdivide.
Select the new edge and press ⎈ CtrlB (Bevel Tool). Scroll MW up once or type 2 to get two segments.
Select everything and press E to extrude the shape.
Select the center edge and move it down.
Delete the faces on the bottom.
Finally, select all the sharp edges and bevel them to your liking.
I'd recommend shading smooth at this point. ;)
