    I was reading the Dell manual on the Inspiron 5150, and came across the FN
    ESC key combination to put computer into sleep mode, IS there a hotkey or
    combination of keys to be pressed to wake up computer besides just pressing
    the power button? In other words in the proper way to wake up after being in
    sleep mode the Inspiron 5150 only to press the power button?

    the power button is the usually way, and that is what you want.
    there is a way to tell it to wakeup upon any key being hit,
    but you dont want that because the computer needs to use much more power
    to sense the buttons being touched. that runs down your battery.
    i usually just suspend or standby, then if i suspended, then opening the
    laptop cover turns it back on automatically.
    otherwise pressing the power button is no so hard.
