Lost shortcut key for sleep button

HP Recommended
HP EliteBook 840 G6
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi HP Support! 


Surprisingly the FN+F3 now is used to reduce the brightness instead of sleep mode.  I know old HP laptop models has this but quite unusual when you get used to it and has been removed.  I like the enhanced shortcut keys on this model but triggers the customer's satisfaction due to lost traditional sleep keys.  It would be reasonable to map it to use the FN+F2 to sleep the laptop right away in one stroke rather than using the ALT-F4, click the arrow drop down button, select the sleep and click OK button in 4 strokes.  I used the command line rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0 but it would be much better to provide quick option for power users. 


Hope you can rectify this!


Thank you and keep safe!
