Dell brought back Fn+F4!!

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Fri Mar 29, 2019 3:05 pm

For anyone who remembers Fn+F4 to go to sleep...well the Dell Latitude machines have it. Fn+Insert puts it to sleep, and it has the same little moon icon on it. I used to use it all the time. With the combination of redesigned ergonomics, much better displays, good build quality, and that....well I might have to take a serious look at the Dell Latitude line the next time I buy a machine.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

I guess you didn't know that all recent Thinkpads have Fn+4 (not F4, but 4) as the sleep combination (other than the TP25, which uses the 'retro' Fn+F4 combo). Many people don't know that, and I wouldn't either, if I hadn't launched the keyboard assistant UI (or whatever it is called) on my X1 Carbon. They have a few such unmarked combos, but it seems like they still don't have one for hibernate (rarely used anymore, to be honest).
