    How to enable "Standby" key in Mandrake 9.2

    I have a dual boot WinXP/Mandrake 9.2
    On my PS/2 keyboard, there's a key with a picture of a crescent moon on it. When I press it in Windows, the computer goes to standby. It doesn't do anything in Linux.
    How do I activate it in Linux?

    Thank you very much.

    run xev, under x, put your cursor in the test window. then press that key.

    Once you have what that key is called, i belive there is a way to run scripts from a key press. Figure that out, and your fixed. I need some help from everyone else here.

    Do you use gnome, kde, xfce or simmilar? I think they all have keyboard shorcut things.... try looking up the settings for those.
