Dell XPS 8910 Keyboard & Crescent Moon

Howdy Everybody.  Yesterday Ron helped me with a Sleep Management issue with my new XPS, so here is another question...

My new Dell Keyboard has a “Crescent Moon” symbol under the F1 tab. 

However, when I press it, the XPS does NOT go into Sleep Mode.

I have been trying to find out how to program this so that when I just tap the F! Tab, Sleep Mode begins.

Some articles have said that you have to press both the Crescent Moon symbol and an "Fn" tab - bit I believe Dell keyboards for desktops do not have Fn tabs.

Can anyone suggest a way to enable this F1 keyboard to allow the Crescent Moon to be activated - putting my XPS 8910 into Sleep Mode?

Thanks!!

Try using the Function Key- FN plus the F1 key. The F keys toggle between Media Settings and Normal depending on whether the FN is used.

Edit: If the keyboard doesn't have a FN key try using the Windows key instead of FN to toggle between settings.
