Sleep set to Never - but did and couldn't recover

\015 I have my laptop under ''power options'' set to never go on sleep however it did and the only way I could recover it was by removing the battery pack for a couple of minutes and then it reset itself so I could turn it on. Two questions - what is the sleep button and how do you turn it on after sleep. I have set in power options to do nothing if I hit the sleep button by accident also as I don't know what it is and don't want to do it by accident. Thanks for your help LG E500\015

Answers :

The sleep button puts your computer into standby i.e. its not opperational but still using power but if you press the on button again it will start imidiatly but it uses power as it is still running the memory, it is like turning your tv to standby it uses electricity but it is still on.
\015\012to turn it on after sleep just press the power/on button on your computer.
Setting the power option is applicable for the laptop when its running on power supply and not on battery.Make the same as the power battery settings.
