    mystery keyboard shortcut activates Sleep without prompt

    Let me preface this with yes I did google and searched on this forum and no I couldn't find anything that seemed to fit this issue. I tried Alt+F4 and that was not the same result.

    When the issue occurred, I was playing a game and within the game there is a debug on/off keyboard shortcut (CTRL+something, a number I think). Anyway, I went to turn off the debug mode by hitting CTRL+number until I found the right key and it went away. But twice, just today (curiously after the latest Lenovo power driver update) I hit more than two keys at once (I know I did) and the computer immediately went to sleep but did not close any programs, so it was just a normal Sleep. Waking up, everything was fine.

    I have no idea what key combo I hit.
    It had to have been CTRL + maybe Shift and a number or F# button, 6/F6 or below. There is no obvious "alt" symbols on any F key to indicate such a shortcut.

    What I really need to know is, where is there a master list of keyboard short cuts, and how can I remove this one? I don't like the idea of sending my computer into a "hard sleep" without any prompt at random when I so easily hit a wrong key.... twice... in one day....

    Anyway, thanks to anyone who knows what's up. I might bring Lenovo support into this, if it's not a Windows thing.

    Lenovo power driver does not work with Windows 10 upgrade, this may be the problem:

    I dunno. This is a fresh win10 install and I don't have the file this article mentions. I did just now do an install via the lenovo website but it changed nothing.

    I've never had power issues once proper, updated drivers were installed. I have none of the problems others have online (like battery conservation). It really seems to be a Lenovo/windows bad hotkey combo. I'll just ask Lenovo support about it.
