Putting your laptop to sleep when not in use can save electricity (and battery power). In most cases, you can put your Windows 10 laptop to sleep from the start menu.

However, a faster option would be to use a button on the laptop itself.

Most laptop manufacturers don’t emphasize the sleep button (or key combination) well.

That’s why in this guide we list where the sleep button is located for the most popular Windows 10 laptops.

How can I find the sleep button on my laptop?

Because the specific location of the sleep button varies by laptop, you can use this checklist to make sure you’re on the right track:

  • Asus Laptops:You can access the sleep function on an Asus laptop by pressing the Fn + F1 keys. There is no dedicated sleep button.
  • Lenovo:You can put most Lenovo laptops to sleep by pressing the Fn + 4 keys. Older models of the B5 series require you to press the Fn + F1 keys.
  • Dell: Dell laptops like the Inspiron 7577 use Fn + Insert. You can put Alienware laptops to sleep by tapping the power key/button once
  • HP: Hewlett-Packard marks the hang up keys on most of its laptops with a crescent moon symbol. Hold down the Fn key along with the moon key to put your laptop into sleep mode.
  • Acer: The sleep button on an Acer laptop is marked with a Zz symbol. If you find this symbol on the F4 key, you can put the laptop into sleep mode by pressing it together with the Fn key.

If you don’t like using the Fn key combination to put your laptop to sleep, you can control the situations in which Windows 10 can be put to sleep.
