reij48418dI agree, bad UX
ultimaterage20618dThat's what the power button does.
aysentur8918dwhen 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.
manolito8618dThe only keyboard that had a sleep button was on my Dell Inspiron from 2008.
++ For custom mechs :3
wonwon013317dmaybe the point of this is exactly to make you power your computer off.
peak energy efficiency.
Lor-inc25084dTo 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.
