Standby hotkey. Can i make one?

  muddypaws 15:41 14 Mar 2008

I have an MS RT2300 wired keyboard. WinXPHome SP2.
Previous keyboard had sleep and wake keys.
Present one has a Start ( wake) key.
How can I set up a hotkey for standby please?
Or is there a key combination that I haven't discovered yet?!
I know you can create an icon on the desktop, but would like a key assigned.
Also if I may ask two questions: Do too many 'standbys' do any harm? Either to PC or monitor.
