Maybe everyone knows this, but I survived with no sleep key on my Dell Studio 1558 for years, until I recently mistakenly discovered this works.

This might not work on all laptops, but I tested it on another of my friends (don't remember the model) and it did. For a little background, I have the function keys set to use their media key functions by default, i.e. you must hold Fn normally to activate F1-F12. Pressing Fn+ Esc is not labeled for anything, however it does put the laptop to sleep, which is how I normally like to keep it.


Hopefully this helps a few people out that never noticed it like me. If you try it and it does (or doesn't) work on your laptop, let everyone know in the comments
