    Put a computer on sleep by keyboard from the welcome screen

    So I have this guy who sits next to me and his computer's fan makes a lot of noise (it's not an unnatural noise to conclude there's something wrong it's like hhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu I don't know how to describe but it's really on my nerves)

    and we don't shut down our PCs usually so he just either switches the user or locks the computer and leaves ... he's the only user BTW

    a few months ago I changed the settings of his PC to go to sleep after 10min...I don't know what happens but all of a sudden it starts working like the fan starts working I doubt if he connects remotely cause he doesn't know how to but now my questions are two:
    1- do you have any idea why the fan starts working when it's supposed to not?
    2- is there any way I can put it on sleep by the keyboard from the welcome screen where he enters his password to login?

    Please help.

    PS. He has DELL Precision T7400
