Assign 'Wake Up' Key

Hi How would I assign a key to wake my computer from stand by, instead of 'any key' which it is at the moment?

You can't assign a specific key. The setting is Wake on Keyboard which means that pressing any key (with a few exceptions, namely the lock toggle keys) will wake your system up if you have this function enabled.
