Wake up button on keyboard does not do anything?

I brought an Advent k112 keyboard a while back.

It has sleep, power and wake up button.

I took the sleep and power button off the keyboard because i accidently used to hit those 2 keys. Since i took them off ive had no problems.

But i was just wondering why the wake up button does not function. I tried it when i hit the sleep key and power key before taking them off but nothing happened.

Weird

With my machine, wake from keyboard means hitting the space bar. Your special key may not be recognized by BIOS to wake the machine up.
