Why can't they get power saving right? Every keyboard I have to pull out the sleep button. Once you press it that's it. PC is dead. Put to sleep.

Do I have to venture into the ancient forest and find a prince to wake it up?

Same thing with monitors these days acting all weird.

Can we put a wake up button on these things? They're backwards. At least have a screen explaining its waking up. The slightest indication.

If power saving is going to be such a hassle I'm going to turn it off.

    That's what the power button does.

    when I had a new keyboard I wasn't used to the placement of the sleep button and I put my PC to sleep on a regular basis.

    playing a game? whoops, PC is sleeping now. can't wake up
    casually chatting? whoops, sleep button.

    it was... annoying to say the least.

    The only keyboard that had a sleep button was on my Dell Inspiron from 2008.

    ++ For custom mechs :3

    maybe the point of this is exactly to make you power your computer off.

    peak energy efficiency.

    To my understanding sleep is an OS feature that prepends the whole memory to the pagefile, sets a flag and then powers off. Anything below OS level probably relies on a very specific partition table or at least a sufficiently sized swap partition to function correctly.
