Here is how you can use the power key on your Chromebook better.
- If you just tap the power button on your Chromebook, the screen will only just blink (not sure if it is the correct word to use for that action). This is useful, because it avoids you accidentally shutting down your Chromebook.
- If you press and hold the power key for a second, the Chromebook’s screen will be locked, similar to the Windows Key + L on your Windows PC.
- If you press and hold the power key for a longer duration, the Chromebook will shut down.
