Sometimes it shift/fn and F7 or you may see what looks like a double screen key...

Can you not just shut the Laptop lid

That sends a Laptop into Hibernation

woodchip you can change what the laptop does when you shut the lid I have mine set to do nothing when the lid is shut to change it you right click on the desktop/properties/screen saver/power/advanced and choose from the options in the different fields

If you shut the lid, HOW do you use the keyboard!!!

SANTOS7 sometimes I watch movies on my television through my laptop, once they are running there is no need to use the keys, if sixgun is using the latop for this then shutting the lid will be ok if on the other hand it is for playing games then obviously my solution would be as much use as a chocolate fire guard;-)

Another thought you can get a USB keyboard and shut the lid and still use the keys, SORTED.
