Special WindowsR 98 Keys – Power, Wake and Sleep

The three keys in the upper right-hand area of the Windows keyboard are there for use with WindowsR 98 and above.  You should consult your Windows manual or help screen for more detailed information on using these keys.

If you are not using the POWER key, you might want to disable it, especially on Multimedia/Internet keyboards.  This can be done one of two ways:

1.At the BIOS level, disabling the ACPI functions will cause all three functions to be disabled.

2.Or go to the Control Panel, Settings, Power Manager, Advanced, Change Power Setting to “suspend”.

Similiar to the other two keys
