Windows 7: "Wake Up" Key on keyboard does not function

"Wake Up" Key on keyboard does not function

On one of my (Many) home desktops I have a keyboard hooked up with a "Power" button, a "Sleep" button, and a "Wake Up" button, this keyboard came included with the computer and I would like to know how to get the "Wake Up" button to function, sure I can wake up the computer with the spacebar but it's sort of a natural instinct to press "Wake Up" and it always just pops into my head "Oh yeah, that doesn't work.". I don't necessarily NEED this function but it'd be nice if it worked properly or served any purpose at all, if there is no way to get it to work would there be a way to use it as something else more useful?
