F12 causes sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2005/05/07 - David Yeh

Hi-- I installed Tiger, and was playing with Dashboard, when I realized when I hit F12 to activate it, it also put my computer to sleep. I assigned Dashboard to another keyboard shortcut, and F12 still sleeps the computer. So my question is, how did I assign this shortcut, and how do I undo or change it? I don't really remember doing it, although it's conceivable I came across some tip somewhere along the line and applied it.

Thanks,
dave

The only built-in method for assigning keyboard shortcuts is from System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts.

Hmmm... and yet, there is no entry in here for sleep.

Ahh-- found the culprit-- I had set this shortcut via SizzlingKeys.
