Windows 10: put computer to sleep accidentally

Self-tutoring about home computer use: the tutor mentions the “sleep” function.

With ever more features available from various keys and combinations, it seems easy to trigger one without meaning to. I’ve triggered “sleep” on this Windows 10 computer a few times accidentally. Finally I looked into it.

This computer’s F2 key is marked Zz. Pressing it seems to put the computer to sleep. However, F2 is right above the 2 key, so gets pressed accidentally sometimes.

I just press the Shift key, then the computer comes back to life.
