C-M-\ runs the command indent-region (check it by typing C-h k C-M-\).
So bind that command to another shortcut. For example, to bind it to C-c i  
put the following line in your .emacs

(global-set-key (kbd "C-c i") 'indent-region)

C-c followed by a letter are user reserved bindings.
And for indentation, have a look at
