Sleep Button

  • I have an Inspiron 5150 with two batteries that I rotate on a semi-weekly basis.  When I go into Power Management, one of the options available is to press the Sleep Button.

     

    I know that when I close the top, my machine goes into hybernation.  When I press the On/Off button it goes into sleep mode, but....

     

    Where is the Sleep Button on my machine? 

     

    This isn't a a problem, its just that curious minds like to know. 

  • The "button" is actually a key combination. It should be either Fn+Esc or Fn+F1. Look at the small blue labels on the keyboard to double-check.

  • Looks like I have a foreign language computer. :smileysad:  My Esc key says in blue...."Suspend."

     

    Or does "Suspend" mean "Sleep?" 

     

    Maybe Dell made it that way because they knew that I was "suspended" for "sleeping."  :smileyvery-happy: 

  • Haha! :smileyvery-happy:

     

    Yup, Suspend equals Sleep. It could be Suspend, Sleep, Stand By, or a moon icon.
